Had been told this quiet Mexican Restaurant was a hidden gem in the Big Lots/Zorba's shopping center. Authentic Mexican with a little USA thrown in. We had the Chicken Fajitas for two. It was absolutely fantastic! We had enough to bring home for lunch tomorrow....More

It was ok. Didn't like the chile relleno...it was deep fried. Rice and shrimp was good. Large portions. If we go again, I'd order something different.

The food has an authentic Mexican taste, unbelievably good. I'm from Texas, and there are many Mexican restaurants but none compare to this type of food. The service as well is excellent!!! The price as well is good, definitely worth every cent. Highly recommended 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼
