All the standard Tex-Mex dishes, plus many others that I've never seen on other Tex-Mex restaurants' menus. Some Southwestern; some Spanish; a few American. Very tempting kids' menu. I've never gotten as far as dessert. When I'm with my family, there's always a dish or...More

This place is great. It's large, but it's been full every time that I've been here. Also, the good is pretty good, and the prices are great! A classic Mexican restaurant with good atmosphere. Definitely worth the trip.
