Friendly staff and The food was plenty. I am used to California Mexican style food, but I have to say it was a very good delicious dinner. The margaritas were Hugh and tasty!

Thank you! We are delighted to see this - yes, our Mexican cuisine is not necessarily traditional, or typical Tex Mex, or like what you'd find in California, so it is good to hear you tried something new and enjoyed it! Thanks for joining us.

Lots of selections and our server was very helpful. The margaritas were excellent. I had the Rancher's Special that included: encillada, taco, and chile relleno. The chile relleno was one of the best I have ever had. Was more than satisfied when we were finished.
