Authentic Mexican atmosphere...feel like you're possibly across the boarder. The street tacos are a weekly stop for lunch and the salsa and chips are an added bonus. Very nice staff and prices are very reasonable.

We ordered our meal and waited for awhile. Everything is prepared from scratch and so the wait was worth it. The food is quite good. The restaurant is small and can be very hard to get into if it's busy. Well worth the visit.
