Our family met here for dinner. We had reservations and were seated right away. Some of our party were late but we weren’t rushed and had drinks and starters. The food was enjoyed by most everyone. The waiter was very nice and helpful.

We stopped by for lunch and this is an excellent authentic Mexican Restaurant. Food and service were both excellent. Fresh tortillas, flautas, chili releno, fajitas, cabrito tacos, cat fish were the dishes we had and none of them disappointed. Oh, forgot the Sopapillas for desert,...More
