When I want Mexican, I go here! The parking lot is often full to over-flowing. Family friendly. Good service. Very good Mexican Fare. Okay, it's not a great atmosphere, but the chairs and tables (or booths) are okay. Just not comfortable for a extended visit in my opinion. I often get Beef Burritos with white cheese sauce. The ground beef... More

Go to El Puerto instead. Better food, service, prices and hospitality. The white queso is to die for and the food always arrives in a very reasonable time, no matter the size of your party. I recommend the fajitas, the quesadillas or the chicken nachos!

This restaurant is a pristine example of original Mexican food. The help is friendly, and the food is served up piping hot on a hot platter. Very good place to eat.

Completely lacked in flavor. Ordered cheese dip to go with chips, so runny it would not stay on chip. Service was okay. Had enchilada with about a tablespoon of sauce on top.

Very good fresh tacos. We went on Taco Tuesday and I would recommend the soft shell over the hard shell. I tried all the flavors of meat: pork, ground beef and chicken and my favorite was pork however they were all delicious! Very fast and friendly service!
