Stopped in to quiet the long overdue craving for Mexican food, and we weren't disappointed. The service was great, the food delicious and the prices affordable. Washed it down with a Mango Margarita! Yum! Tamales, enchiladas, and chimichangas!

We love this restaurant! The margaritas are great - kick butt variety. Food is plentiful and very good. For a couple of Texans, this is as close as it gets to good Mexican cooking. We were bummed out when we saw their other location closed...More
