I have been to the restaurant about three times now. I tend to get the fish tacos and for the second time in a row, I felt the fish tacos lacked flavor. I add a small side of jalapeño which the charge 1.29 for just...More

We have eaten at this restaurant since it opened. The food is always flavorful, hot and good. They also make a mean margarita! You definitely will eat a great meal!

Friendly service and budget friendly for large portions. Tons of choices on menu-Tamales were very good but ordered pork and it was ground beef. Minor problem/didn't send them back...they were good. Our table of 4 shared a pitcher of margaritas which were fantastic.
