Loved my arroz con pollo today. The chicken was tender, the rice was moist and the cheese sauce was flavorful. Also the complimentary chips and salsa hit the spot while waiting for my meal.

Ordered take out dinner $7.00, 1 Taco $1.99, Cheese with the chips. Total $16.17. Terribly high for cheese and they stuck in extra chips for $1.75 even though chips came with meal !! Won't go back, Mi Pueblos next time !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good prices, great food. ACP and the chicken quesadillas are my two favorite. Ignore the feq negative reviews. People like that do nothing but look for a reason to complain and usually aren't being honest. Usually not busy except for prime dinner times.

My buddy and I had a late, light dinner here. Just some drinks and some quesadillas. Everything was great. The bartender (we sat at the bar) was a super attentive and friendly guy.
