“Love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

So thankful this place is in my backyard! Never had a bad experience here and try to go once a week. The food is awesome, the owners treat you like family and did I already say the food is awesome? Reasonably priced and delicious! Chilaquiles are to die for as are the tacos, chile rellano and chicken taco salad. Have not ever tried their margaritas as I usually go for lunch but plan to soon. Give this place a try and you won't go anywhere else. My family of three can eat there for the same price as Taco Bell @ lunch (not kidding)

“Uninspired...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013 via mobile

Tried this place 3 times now and this is the last time. Bland food overall, long time between order and delivery. One bright spot is the salsa which is delicious, but not so much I'll come back.
