Thought we picked a great authentic Mexican place for lunch after reading Yelp reviews and passing by some Mexican gentlemen on our way in. Yes, call me whatcha will, I do judge restaurants by the crowd they serve. We stood around with no one to help us or greet us. Then a man came and asked us to sit. He... More

I think this is the best Mexican food around. Always greeted as a friend. The food is great and the margaritas are also great. All the food is very good and is served fresh and hot.

We eat here fairly often so when we had out of town guests that wanted good Mexican we took them here. Menu includes typical Tex-Mex but also some specialties. We were not disappointed in the food. However - the wait was over an hour after we were told it would be less than 20 mins. There was a private party... More

Typical Americanized Mexican fare. Basic menu, nothing extraordinary. Food was okay, salsa was decent. The margaritas were really good and strong for the price.

Been eating here for 30 yrs but been a long time since went for supper. Love salsa. I love their specialty items. Regular Tex mex is just ok. Margaritas are good. I like eating in a local restaurant. Get tired of the chains.

Authentic Mexican family owned spot that has been a staple for our get togethers for 20 years. We had a great time and a great waitress who has been there for 18 years... Filet with stuffed poblano pepper never disappoints.

Locally popular with decades of devoted clientele. Family owned with chef from San Miguel, Mexico. My husband enjoys the authentic dishes with chorizo, bistec, and chili relleno, while I go for ordinary Tex-Mex, which is also pleasing, but not above average. The owners usually greet us, often by name, and they treat all diners in this way. We usually visit... More

I read about this restaurant in one of the local guides that highlight happenings in the area. We decided to try it. The place is really nice and the wait staff friendly and courteous. The food was really good. I really liked the salsa as it was not too hot but still had some kick. The owner came by our... More
