Service and food was average. Had a lot of menu options. Food arrived in a timely manner. Cost was very reasonable.

Found this place using tripadvisor and was not disappointed. Got the shrimp / chorizo nachos and customized with grilled onions and jalapenos. Husband got the california burrito as recommended by another reviewer - he also customized with grilled jalapenos. YUM

I love Mexican food, but this was a bit disappointing. I arrived at 2:50 and waited to be seated. By the time the waiter took my order, I wasn't able to order from the lunch menu. The food was average.
