In the old Dairy Queen building. Have friends who live nearby and they like the place. They took me there. It was surprisingly good; not top-notch, but pretty good. I wasn't expecting much, given the location, but I would definitely go back there again. It...More

Food was okay. Normal Mexican fare, nothing special. Went here on the way home from vacation because of the good reviews. Would not drive the extra 4.5 miles off I-70 again for the food. Waitress was pleasant & very helpful.
