I enjoyed the friendly service at this restaurant with quirky Mexican decor. The guacamole is amazing! I could eats bowls of it. The entrees were fresh and filling! They are not too greasy either. They don't take credit cards for tips, so bring cash!

This place is kind of basic. Food is good but nothing spectacular - however I found portions to be good and guacamole was good. Service is okay. I would eat here again but wouldn't go out of my way.
