Typical Mexican food menu with excellent service and quality. Not one of our favorites for Mexican seasoning, but might just be a matter of regional specialties. We'll be back for sure.

Had the chicken brava and my husband had th enchilada verde - both very good. Salsa also very good but chips were greasy. Waitress said they make them everyday. Clean and staff very friendly. The only thing I didn't like was the overwhelming cleaning chemical smell - didn't know if it was coming from the restrooms or just because they just finished cleaning - we were there late evening.

I used to live in the neighborhood, and found that I see more old friends there than any other restaurant in the area. Why? Great Mexican food, friendly staff, great service, and nice ambiance. Clean and wll lighted. If I had a complaint, it is probably that it is a little too well lighted (sorry Hemingway). You won't be disappointed. It is always busy, but never a problem getting a table. They could work on their breakfast (coffe is too weak, and meal is a little small for the price). I don't think they take breakfast seriously. It is sort of we are there getting ready for lunch, so why not be open. Anyway, they make up for this at lunch and dinner. I do think that breakfast could be a success with a few improvements.
