Our first time here, and compared to other Mexican restaurants, this one is pretty good. A good size menu and plenty of setting, with a few seats outside.

Lunch specials are a good deal. Service is fast, friendly and accommodating. Soups are very good. Usually go for lunch because we can get in and out quickly. Breakfasts are also good on weekends. No margaritas or would have rated it higher.
