Just a good Mexican restaurant for lunch or dinner. Very friendly staff and management. The food is good and you never go away hungry. Not too spicy but never bland. I have eaten lunch here many times and never had a bad experience. Try it out!

One of our favorites to visit for tacos, burritos, and fajitas. Good amount of food for the price and the salsa is very good. Sometimes they have entertainment that vary from good to annoying, so be choosy where you sit since you normally get to pick go where you want to in the three areas they have.
