“Typical Tex-Mex”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

Nothing to rave about but not bad either. Typical small town, safe Tex-Mex food. Very friendly staff. Chille rellenos are good.

“Good food with local atmoshere”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

The location is great and the decor is a bit differant from most Mexican Resturaunts. The foor and service was very good and quick. Ate dinner and thought the prices were a bit high but not outragous. Next time we will try lunch.

“Order to go”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

We just called in an order of 2 carnatas. Once we were home the meat was very limited on both portions as well as the beans and rice. It did not even cover the bottom of the little take out container. Lettuce,tomato, were not included with for tortilla toppings, and to top it all off they gave us one tiny to go dish(raminkin) of salsa to go with the chips. Very disappointed.

“Average restaurant”
Reviewed 4 March 2014 via mobile

Atmosphere is simple, a bit run down, could be cleaner for sure; food is consistently okay not great but not bad. Alcohol is reasonable and is a good place to share some apps while catching up with friends
