Very average Mexican American food in a comfortable family friendly atmosphere. Easy to locate and plenty of open tables on Saturday evening. Friendly staff.

This is just down the street from the Best Western Hotel and is very convenient. We ate here on the outdoor patio. They had a special that had shrimp and chicken in it. They give you plenty of chips and salsa too. Overall, this was a very good meal at a good price.
