Not traditional Mexican. A little more fancy than your normal taco place. I've eaten there a couple times a month for 10 years, Never had a bad meal. Great fajitas, tacos, rellenos, etc. staff is friendly. Good value.

We've been a handful of times and always have a great meal. They start by bringing complimentary chips and bean dip along with three housemade salsas. Love the spinach enchiladas which are way more tasty than their name emplies. My husband really liked their mole...More
