We are regulars here and love the crew, Anita the mgr, and we are spoiled! The food is always fresh, and they go out of there way to help you anyway they can! The place is always clean, dusted, carpet is vacumed, and I can actually do the white glove treatment and be happy! The prices are very good and... More

Good food, quick, it might not meet some peoples standards for being authentic, but with so many claiming authentic Mexican food, who can tell. Easy location to find, good parking and drive thru if you want to take it home.

The same meat is used for every meal, just wrapped a different way. Not bad food, just not authentic as claimed. If you want authentic Mexican food... Go else where.

West Mex meets authentic style Mexican food. We like to meet our friends for a few margaritas and nachos on a budget. Service has always been speedy. Quiet dining.
