Great food. Authentic cuisine and service was good. Definitely enjoyed the authenticity of their dishes!! Very unobtrusive in a strip center but yummy yummy with a cute outdoor cafe!

This place makes their own tortillas and I got beef fajitas. They were amazing! My daughter got a quesadilla with scallops and shrimp and she said it was fantastic!!! Highly recommend!!!

We were a party of four and stopped for a light dinner. We all ordered something different and shared appetizers, quesadillas, tacos and burritos. Service was excellent. The menu was varied and prices very reasonable.

Previously desirable restaurant but now leaves a lot to be desired. Nachos were soggy, queso was cold, and we dropped almost $100 bill for two entrees and an app. Flavor was good but I expect hot food for that price, epic failure. The waiter slammed...More

Started out at the bar to wait for our table. The bartender was great especially since we only ordered soft drinks. But, the food was just awful. The food sat heavy in both our bellies. Of course the chips and salsa are good but the...More
