We read the reviews and decided to try it. The staff was very friendly, good service. Prices were good, but too much fried food and the quality wasn't great. However, very good chips and salsa, just not impressed with the bar menu.

We are sorry you didn't like the Happy Hour food you chose. We have many non-fried items on the Happy Hour Menu, please join us again sometime and thanks for the feedback. Deba on behalf of owner Julian Ramos

All the expected dishes at a Mexican restaurant in the US. Just enough English in the menu to know what you're ordering. Reasonably attentive service, affordable pricing.

Love this place, some very interesting flavors, very subtle. The ceviche is the best I've ever had. Only complaint is that they had a big party on Thursday, so service was slow. But they are really nice people.

Have gone numerous times, many times bringing family and friends. My family,who eat Mexican food all the time, is from Arizona and they said the food is very good and very authentic.

Large family friendly restaurant. Very large portions, good margaritas. Traditional Mexican food. Enchilada average, and salsas good but not exceptional. Good place to bring kids, lively and lots of large tables.
