I love the tall booths & Mexican decor; as soon as you enter, you feel like you've entered an authentic Mexican restaurant. The food is is very good and authentic & the chips arrive warm! Make sure to order the delicious special guacamole. The only item I don't recommend is the seafood; both times I've ordered it, it wasn't fresh;... More

This is real. The owners and staff are Mexican. Friendly is an understatement. The menu is huge and they are happy to customize the dishes. There is Mexican beer on tap; try the Dos Equis lager-crisp and light. Go for the extra large frosted glass. Salsa is homemade, as are the chips. Kids will love the place.

This restaurant has DELICIOUS Mexican. The portions are big too! The ambience is not exciting and it is cold... but that might be because we went in December.

Very limited draft beer selection. They did not have the local on the menu. Fajitas were great. Lots of tortilla chips and salsa.

Visiting family in the area and they suggested here for dinner. We were seated immediately and the menu looked like your typical family run Mexican fare - however, when my Camarones a La Diabla came out I knew I was in for a treat just from the wonderful aroma. The flavor was amazing - definitely spicy, but supremely flavorful. Very... More

You think you're lost when trying to find this restaurant. It's tucked away in a small shopping plaza. But we were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good and the margaritas were awesome!! My friends who I went with are from Colorado and they said they hadn't had such good Mexican food since they left there. Turns out the owner... More

This is one of our go-to restaurants in the area... great food, delicious drinks and friendly service. It's in a small plaza with not much going on, but don't let that stop you from visiting here. The homemade salsa is reason enough to try it out. Lots of vegetarian and seafood options as well.

It is a nice place, friendly people food is OK but just average. Burritos, chimichangas, cheddar cheese are not that common in Mexico..
