We stopped here for lunch because of the great reviews and the meal did not disappoint. I would've liked to have gone back for dinner one night because their special dishes sound delicious. Our waiter was very polite.

A great, authentic Mexican restaurant! If this was near home, we would eat here all the time. Good portion sizes. Great tasting food. Very attentive waitress. The furniture could use some updating/repairs, but the place was clean.
