Typical Mexican food, great location, right next to the Historic park. If you want Maxican food, you are at the right place. Try them.

I remember going here years ago. The food was better then. We sat down outside and were served waters immediately. They never asked if we wanted anything else to drink. The chips and salsa were okay but never refilled. The portion size of the meals...More
