“Won't return”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

The service was pretty bad and they were slow. Shrimp tacos were nothing more than rubbery shrimp with hot pico in a flour tortilla. Carnitas were so tough and over cooked that I emptied the burrito for the tortilla to eat with my rice and beans.

“Favorite Mexican Food in Town”
Reviewed 3 February 2013

Consistently great food at most reasonable prices. This is a small restaurant in a strip mall that has some patio dining. Service is excellent. There are many Mexican restaurants in town but this seems to my family to be the best. Take a menu copy home and get 10% off your next visit when you return with the menu. Portions are huge. Plenty of parking. They are set up to serve large groups as well as individuals.

“Want to go back!”
Reviewed 2 November 2012 via mobile

Our friends took us here today. What a treat. I had the fish tacos which were fantastic. The chicken fajitas, taco salad, and lunch special were all great. Wish we lived closer! The waitress's are so sweet and make this place special!

“Great Authentic Mexican Food”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

Great tasting authentic Mexican food. Eat inside or outside. Burritos are excellent. They serve complimentary chips and a salsa/pico that is really spicy but you cannot stop eating it! Good service.

“It's more than a dive restaurant :)”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

it doesn't look like much from the outside but the food is good. Large portions. Not allowed to vary from the menu too much. Requested a change in sauce for my dish but they said they were too busy to make it differently. Has alcohol.
