although on the small side, this little gem has a substantial menu offering. The tortillas are made on premise, which they offer corn or flour. All the items ordered were fresh and delishous. Can't wait to do again!

We went to eat here based on the reviews they were given. First time the reviews failed us. We ordered nachos, beef and chicken tacos. The food was not what we're used to as far as Mexican food. But the Chef was so apologetic that...More

It's more of a happy hour, after work drink and be happy place in my opinion. They probably have some decent Mexican Taco's and empanada's and such, but my food was sub - par. A bowl of Mexican crab soup $ 8:50 was a huge...More

I appreciate your comments. Oddly enough, our crab soup and relleno are two of our top selling items! Our Kickin' Crab Soup is a popular menu item, but clearly it wasn't to your taste. Maybe you could try a crab quesadilla next time if you're...More
