We had a nice group dinner here...it's a bit typical Mexican/American...but everyone liked their food...my torilla soup was really good and big. It's not cheap food...but good portions.

Absolutely everything about our dining experience was amazing! I especially want to thank our server for his extreme caution and concern regarding our son's peanut allergy. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing meal.

Had lunch special which was two enchilada for something like $5. Chips and salsa and refried beans were brought quickly and after ordering the meal it wasn't a long wait at all. Food was all delicious and everything was on the affordable side. Glad I decided to finally try this Mexican restaurant. I will definitely eat here again.

This place out performed what I expected. Pulled up, older building, but everything there was older, few questionable people outside, the food was great, and you got plenty of it, the service was fast, the waiter was friendly. I had the chicken molé, it was a sweet molé, which I have never had before, I really liked it.

What's worse than a waiter who seems wholly disinterested in taking your family's order? One who when he brings the food to the table finds he can't reach the opposite corner of it from where he is standing and so tries to climb over your seated teenage daughter to set down a plate. Hand to God it actually happened. I... More

Had heard this place was good. Stopped in for lunch. Very quaint and good parking. Friendly staff and quick service. They brought fresh home made chips and great salsa and a bean dip. I always order a Chile Relleno when dining at Mexican restaurant. If they can do that right they are generally pretty good. It was excellent and they... More

On my recent "Goonie" trip, I saw this restaurant and stopped. Not knowing what to expect, I'm happy we did. The best Mexican food I've had I. Quite sometime. Wish they'd open in my town.

Thank dannyg923
