Used to live close by here, but now just get to eat here when visiting friends. Always liked this and were not disappointed this time! Really good food and service was quite acceptable for our table of 8. If there is a complaint, it's that...More

My food was very bland. The special sauce was tasteless. I had the Taquileno Burrito. The main ingredient seems to be rice. My husband had the Tacos el Carbon. The meat was dry and no seasoning. Refried beans seems watery and just not very good....More
