Unremarkable. Typical small town Mexican food. Inexpensive ingredients, mediocre. Beer was good. Family restaurant, loud. We won't return.

We like their food. Taste fresh and lots of choices. Not fancy but clean. Staff friendly and service has been good for dine in or carryout. Good Margaritas. Salsa bar with several choices including some spicy ones.
