We eat here very often. Love the food, the prices and the service! We love Mexican-American, so this is what we always go back to! We've tried many Mexican restaurants, but this is our fav!

Seated fast at 7 on a Sat. Chips and salsa were good. We ordered chicken burrito supreme and taco and chili rellano. All were excellent. Not too much food which is nice for a change. If I lived here I would visit again
