“Excellent but not fancy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

This is a place that you might not stop at were you driving by...it doesn't look great from the outside. The interior looks decided Mexican but dated and a bit drab. But don't let this deter you. The food is excellent and the service sparkles even if the place does not.
My wife, Rose, likes the enchiladas in a green sauce and my youngest grandson, Evan, annouced to the whole resturant in a loud voice "this is the best cheese quesadilla in the whole world." Their menu offers all the traditional Mexican dishes but has others that are a bit different --such as Rose's green enchiladas.

As a nice extra, everyone is served a free, small bowl of Mexican beans before the meal with the chips and homemade salsa. The resturant is family run and the waiter is one of the nicest and most pleasant waiters you could want.
