The salsa is bland and tastes like canned tomatoes. The cheese dip is runny. Chips and dip is what makes or breaks a Mexican restaurant.

I have been eating at this restaurant ever since it opened and it’s very good. Complimentary chips, homemade salsa, delicious tortillas, and complimentary sopapillas make it a great bargain.

We usually go early Sunday around 11:15 before the place gets packed out. Portions are great and you can not beat the free chips and other items that come with the meal. .Usually, my wife and I can split an entire meal.

Thank you Clay for a very nice lunch. Food was very hot and my drink never ran dry! As usual the chips and cheese sauce were wonderful, the salsa in my opinion is like opening a can of tomatoes. Chimi was delicious and filling.More
