Nice friendly service. Great chips & salsa. Rice & beans were great. Burrito was great. We will definitely come back.

My husband and I stumbled across this restaurant a couple of months ago, and decided to give it a try....and we are so happy we did! This family-owned restaurant has become one of our favorites, and we literally eat there at least a couple of times each week. We just can't get enough of their authentic dishes....handmade corn tortillas, authentic... More

I usually don't go to authentic Mexican places. This was recommended by our inn. I read the reviews and we decided to try it. I am so glad we did. Food was delicious. I don't eat salsa. I tried theirs and ate a bunch. It was fresh and good. The el pollo loco was great. The refried beans and rice... More

We went to this restaurant based of Trip Advisor Reviews and we were not disappointed. I must say however if we had not read the reviews we might not of went to this restaurant. It is a small restaurant and a little hard to find and located in a older building. My husband and I were glad that we decided... More

This may have been the best Mexican food I have ever had north of the border. We had Carnitas tacos, tostadas and quesadillas. Everything we had was perfect. As a native Texan I eat Mexican food 3 or 4 times and week and this was much better than anything I get at home. Don't expect to get cheese enchiladas with... More

We were not impressed. I had fajitas and they were no better than most Tex-Mex restaurants. My wife had the same opinion about her plate., AND we had regular refried beans and rice (several reviews said they did not serve refritos and rice like other Mexican restaurants)! We will try other places before this one again.

Bummer. Nice people, ok ambiance, but the kitchen sure had its off day. Food was NOT fresh, was served cold (not lukewarm, cold) and after an unsuccessful nuking attempt in the kitchen, came back only slightly warmish. At which point we decided to give up. Too bad.

We walked into the restaurant and heard Mexican music, which I consider a good sign. The tables and booths are NOT fancy but the food is FANTASTIC! My husband had the chicken burrito and there was no way he could finish it. I ordered the chicken fajitas and took over half home, only because I couldn't eat anymore---but I tried.... More

After reading the reviews I just had to go here. Mexican is my favorite food! We got there at 12:00 on a Saturday and the place was empty. Should of been my first clue. I really don't see how people can say this is the best they have ever had. Maybe it depends on what you order. We had steak... More
