Food is very good and quite plentiful. Staff is always friendly. I eat here regularly. I like the grilled chicken salad. For only $10 there is a lot of chicken. Also comes with salsa and chips.

If you want great Mexican food this is the place! We keep coming back for the great food and service. The margaritas aren't too bad either. Great place to bring the family. Friendly atmosphere. I try something different every time and I'm never disappointed.
