It's a small but nice place to have lunch. They serve mainly Mexican dishes and nice fresh juices. Food was great and staff very friendly. Good place for a quick stop and lunch.

We needed a break from the rain & popped in for lunch. Steak tacos were delicious - enjoyed their hot sauce. Pineapple smoothie was sweet & yummy. Friendly staff.
