We had a craving for nachos, so we Googled and found this place in a plaza across the street from our vacation rental on Clark Rd. it's mostly for take out, though there were some tables. Music wasn't our taste nor was the decor, but the take out food was delicious and we were served quickly. Good prices, too.

We ended up going back 4-5 times throughout our vacation, we loved... More

I have eaten here many times, at this location and others. I have eaten here with family and friends, including some friends who say beforehand that they do not like Mexican food. I tell them if they do not like the food, I will pay for their meal. I have not paid yet.
