I miss this restaurant so much. This has been the only restaurant that makes salsa dip the perfect consistency for my taste (not too chunky and not watery). My kids love this place! We miss their salsa and queso blanco so much! Their rice, tacos, fajitas and enchiladas are my favorite thing to order! so good!!!

It's like stepping into a family kitchen. The wait staff is pleasant, it's family owned, and the food is delish.

Really good Tex-Mex with extremly cold frosty beer mugs. The chips and salsa are interesting. And the wait staff is fast and friendly.

This restaurant is closed due to the landlord raising the rent to unimaginable heights. It is too bad as it was one of the few authentic Mexican places around this neck of the woods.

This place is not well kept. Would worry what's in the kitchen. Food was average. Waiter never came back for beverage refills. Seating is not comfortable because it's falling apar.

The waitress must have been having a bad day as she was not very friendly at all. We will go back and try it again as the food was pretty good.
