Fast service, busy and popular place. The tortillas and tamale mass were good. The sauces were watered down and the meat was very "chewy". Reasonable prices but not even " real" tex mex, let alone Mexican.More

Stopped in here for dinner when in town on business. The waiter, Jakob, was awesome! Food was great also but the waiter made the night. He played off our eclectic group really well and gave us excellent service!

The food was amazing! I also like that they brought you free queso and so many different kinds of salsa. Our chip bowl was kept full as well as our drinks without requesting more. The food and staff was amazing.
