Very nice atmosphere, good service with food temperature very hot and fresh. If Mexican food is not served hot, it is a flop. Not here, not only are the plates hot, the food is too. Not afraid to be too spicy, authentic dishes each one...More

I enjoyed my visit here with friends. The prices and service are great. The food was also very enjoyable. I tried the Philly cheesesteak chimichanga as I wanted something different. It was actually pretty good, though the fries were pretty blah.

Large menu offers something for just about anyone and daily specials also. Nice bar area with sports on the TVs. Great friendly service. Prices are reasonable and restaurant is very clean. I enjoyed a beef enchilada and a Chile Reneno, both good.
