We live nearby and frequent often. Great Mexican style food. We enjoy the taco salad, but all dishes are very good and as close to the Mexican dish as it can be. Almost all the staff is of Mexican decent which adds to the authenticity.

Stopped here for lunch on our way to Orlando and we should have kept going. Bland, mediocre at best food. The service was good, but you obviously get what you pay for here. Cheap food = cheap food! Lesson learned.
