Margaritas are huge and made to order! Food--from tacos, burritos, deluxe nachos, enchiladas, platters--is always spot on and served hot with plenty of chips and salsa.

We moved away but this place is a must every time we visit. Food is always fresh and comes out quickly. The chilli rellenos and Carne Asada are our favorites. Ask for Antonia as your server, she is very personable and attentive.

I liked the quality yet my family were quite picky, and my meal was very satisfactory and tasty. Yet, I like being with family when eating out.
