The food is good and there are adequate portions, however the food bill is always so much higher than other comparable local eateries

Fairly new restaurant and has recently expanded and now can offer private room for parties. Extremely clean and servers are very nice. Food is excellent if you enjoy Mexican. On Main Street in small town and easy to locate.
