All four of us enjoyed our meals. We had a burrito, quesadilla, nachos, they were very good. I had the vegetable quesadilla and it was one of the best I’ve had. Wish we had room for dessert, they looked delicious. Next time, just dessert 😁

By far our favorite. Great food, great price, great atmosphere and happy, friendly, helpful staff. It’s the real deal. Highly recommended. Plenty of parking on the rear. Call first because Friday through Sunday it’s always very busy.

Casual, colorful atmosphere allows for fun dining experience. The fish taco plate was nicely prepared and the enchiladas looked great, too. Nice variety of margaritas and other festive drinks. Great service.
