We arrived 10 minutes to closing. We were welcomed warmly and was not rushed to finish our meals. Prices are reasonable, food is good with generous servings. Free chips and salsa with your meal.

The servers were all very welcoming and helpful. The Mexican food was reasonable and very tasty. We were there after the lunch hour and they were still on their toes and giving us great service.
