We were very pleased with this restaurant choice. Burritos with real beef (small cut up chunks), chimichanga, chili relenos, enchiladas, margaritas were all very good.

We arrived around 5:20 on Sunday night of Memorial Day weekend and there were only a couple of tables open. "Wow, this place is busy, so it MUST be good." Yep. The two of us shared a "Fajitas Hawaiian", which was one of the waiter's recommendations when asked and it was absolutely delicious and more than enough alongside chips & salsa - we even had to leave a couple of forkfuls on the plate! The guacamole deserves its own individual mention, as does the service.

As others said, don't judge a book by its cover. It's not an impressive looking restaurant, but the food tastes like your Mexican grandmother made it in her kitchen. The service was hyper-fast. I had a chicken quesadilla appetizer that was perfect for a whole meal. It was quite affordable and delicious.

We have eaten here at least a dozen times. The food is consistently very good. The service is fast and the prices are reasonable. The only thing we don't like is the ice water?! But that shouldn't stop anyone from trying this place. :-)

Very unexpected good Mexican food starting with unusual Salsa and housemade chips. We also ordered Med. Guacamole (the small wouldn't be enough for 2), Ceviche and a side Crab Enchilada, excellent and delicious! This was our 2nd visit and won't be our last. We also ordered Chardonnay and the pour was very generous for only $3.50 a glass, not fine dining but tasty all the same!
No parking issues, no reservations needed for weekdays. Great for families and parties, daily specials like all you can eat Tacos on Tuesdays!
