Basic Mexican food, nothing special. Chips and salsa were good. Terrible service, waited forever . No check back on food. No reason for me to return.

Not the greatest meal I've ever had, but reasonable and reasonably priced. Very tasty rice. Beans are ok. My friend said that it was, perhaps, the best cheese enchilada he has ever had.
