The owners are very nice and it's a great atmosphere, but I just can get around the bland meat (especially the chicken and carne asada.) I wouldn't mind the prices if the meat was more flavorful. I noticed this a few months back but gave...More

We came here looking for some good taqueria style Mexican food... It was sort of good. It seemed pricey for what you get... The staff seemed annoyed by me asking a question.. The set up is fine but it needs a cleaning.. We are all...More

Very high prices and small portions and not that great tasting! I paid like 10 bucks for a burrito for lunch and I think taco bell burrito is larger and tastier!

My daughter and I shared a very reasonably priced burrito. There was a very long waiting line to order but well worth the wait. The fajitas looked sumptuous. You need to go there and enjoy the ambiance of this Mexican Restaurant. The Burrito is made...More
