Nice place, the plates are big and the fresh made tortillas are wonderful. Once you eat one of this fresh tortillas one time, all other tortillas you may eat in future will be less. The chicken tortilla soup I tried also was good and the...More

It was a quiet afternoon when I visited, not busy at all. The food and value were good. The bartender seemed to be more interested in talking to the other employees than to any of the customers. So the experience could have been better.

I sat outside on the patio. It was a bit windy but the weather was warm and I could watch everything going on around me. The service was quick and the food was great. I had no waiting.

Festive decorations and fun place. You are given a bowl of chips with salsa automatically. You can also ask for fresh tortillas that you can watch them make. Food is pretty average and the service is alright.

If you are looking for Mexican food at a decent price, please don't go here. They are an overpriced, bland experience with stingy portions, unappealing quality, and mediocre service. We were kept waiting 15 minutes before we were seated in an almost EMPTY restaurant, and...More
