If you like Mexican food I encourage you to try this place. We make our yearly visit and once again enjoyed a great meal. Menu offers a wide selection with a lot of combinations and the service is always good. Chips are great

We stop here every year on our way to Hatteras. The food and service is always good. The fresh salsa is very good and has a nice "kick" to it. We will definitely keep on coming back!!

Good basic Mexican food -- tacos, enchiladas and the like. Not gourmet, but tasty. Generous portions.
