Really good food and the staff is friendly. Reasonably priced for a large portion of food. It gets busy on a fri or sat night.

Fresh and good service and mex food is fine but raised in California I have favorite Mexican restarants to go . If you don’t feel like driving to Mexican town stop in here for your standard Mex food.

Fabulous margaritas, friendly servers, and the best food! They use (tons) of Muenster cheese and it's sooo worth all the calories! The entrees are large enough to share (or not ;) ) they have tons of different flavors of margaritas to choose from as well...More
