Visit this place every few weeks. Service is very good. Lots of deals on the lunch menu. Daily drink specials. The mixed fajitas and Quesadilla Cochina are both excellent.

Ordered the fajitas for two, and it was a huge mound of steak, pork, chicken and shrimp! Made for great leftovers for lunch the next day.

I had the Chicken Enchiladas Suissas. This was a great choice as it was awesome. My wife loved her steak fajitas too. Service was also excellent.
