Though filling, the food we ordered lacked the flavors we expected from an authentic Mexican restaurant. Service was good, but the food left us craving some real Mexican flavor.

We visited for dinner and since we had or dog we ate outside. Very nice location just off State Street. I had a steak dish the was excellent. Others all enjoyed their food. Can't beat 4 meals with drinks for under $50. Service was pleasant.

Ate here a couple of weeks ago when it was very warm and humid outside. The first thing I noticed was that it was warmer inside the restaurant than outside. It's a small place with maybe a dozen tables and although the food I received...More

Pleasantly surprised by this gem right off of State Street. The chips were warm & fresh and the salsa spicy with onions peppers and cilantro, with that they also brought out squeeze bottles of both a spicy red and a green sauce, not sure which...More
