Ordered simple Mexican dishes (burritos and nachos) and it took almost 30 minutes to get our meal. Burrito was drenched in a red sauce to the point that you couldn't taste anything else. The chicken on the nachos was over-cooked and over seasoned. Our server...More

Food was OK. It is in the same shopping center as Walmart, right on the main Hwy. 61. Easy access. We do not go out and eat Mexican style food very often so we were pleased to see this restaurant near the Walmart.
