It was very busy which is a good sign that the food was good. We were very happy with our meal which was a variety of things. Serve was fast and friendly. Prices were also very good for what you get.

I have visited this restaurant dozens of times. Food is always good. Service can be a little slow but it is usually very busy on those nights. The Jalisco special is a favorite on the menu.

We tried this without any recommendations and have returned twice and never disappointed. The carnitas plate is exceptional and large portions. Service is a little slow but worth the wait. Very good!

If you can never have too much salty ground beef, then you will love this chain. Taco Bell is better.
