“Good food and great service. Tip with cash only..”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We live within 15 minutes of this place and frequently eat here. The fish tacos are very good as are the chimichangas and most everything else. The queso dip is great! If you are paying with a card make sure you tip with cash. Somehow the staff are altering the written tips and bumping the amount up by anything from pennies to a buck or more at times. We have seen this more frequently at other restaurants over the past 2 years.

Got the burrito Mexicano. It has just about everything in it. Take out was fast and they added chips to the order. Good Mexican food at reasonable prices with friendly service.

“Great deals & delicious chips”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

We visited the restaurant during their Cinco de Mayo celebration, and there were great deals to be had. They had 99 cent taco, 99 cents tequila shots, and $2.99 margaritas. The chips were hot, toasty, and delicious; and the salsa was very fresh. They also have a ranch/white sauce for chips - yum. Portions are about average although people with a big appetite might be left wanting a little more. Four of us went to dinner, ordered lots of food, and had several drinks - and the price was quite affordable.
