As a local we eat here often. Good food, good service, good prices. It has to be good or we don't come back.

I am really picky about my Mexican food but this place blew me away! I orders the nachos with everything and it was amazing. Very fresh! Our waiter was very attentive and didn't become bothersome like some do. I will definitely be back here again!
