Local restaurant, great food. Huge portions. Have been here many times, walk in and wait for your table, usually under 20 minutes. Not fancy, but very tasty Mexican dishes, lots of variety. Tacos, burritos, salads, refried beans etc. Yummy!! Good service, family atmosphere.

Ok, maybe Tex-Mex has ruined me but although this was a cute place, the food was bland and seemed over cooked. The waitress wasn't very personable; however, the fellow who bused the table was charming! Standouts were chips and the fresh flour tortillas. Everything else...More
