We happened to be watching my two older grandkids and they suggested that we go for Mexican food.

Their outdoor seating was open, but it just seemed a bit too chilly to be outside. The kids... More

I always take my customer here for awesome Mexican food. The food is great and the staff is very friendly. The portions are substantial and a great value. I have had several items on the menu and have never been disappointed. This is a must if you enjoy quality Mexican food.

Still waiting on food. Forgot about us for seating. Finally asked if we were forgotten. Said no, but others who came after us got seated. No apology. Nothing. Will never return. Too many other great Mexican restaurants to waste time on this one
