The menu is large, the food is delicious and consistent.Margaritas are flavorful, generous, and potent! The staff couldn't be nicer. You'll need a doggie bag because the portions are huge.

This is a very decent Mexican restaurant. The inside is nicely decorated and the food was fair. I was hoping it would have been better. Also the men's room had no paper towels.
