The food was excellent. The service/ambiance left a little to be desired. We were seated next to a cold, drafty window. We asked if there was better seating available and got moved 2 feet away to another seat next to the front entrance which was cold and drafty. There were several other seats available, not sure why we weren't given better options. Service seemed cold and uninviting. Nothing beyond, here's a menu, what's your drink, meal, are you finished, do you need a bag. Not necessarily warm and inviting. Very businesslike. That being said, the food was delicious.

A fantastic family owned & operated restaurant serving authentic Mexican food. As soon as you step a foot in the door, you are jovially welcomed by the Hostess & almost every other staff member passing by. More so, that will stop by your table to see if you need anything.

The restaurant & restrooms are kept in a tidy fashion, with two separate places to dine in, the main area & separate space that can be used for private events. The full bar is quaint with 4 stools & a TV.

The menus are vast providing an enormous selections of Mexican & Salvadoran favorites, a small offering of European fare & specialty menu. In which I ordered from getting the Chilean Sea Bass Tacos that were very good…the homemade Sangria is a must!

Prices & portions are perfect & as previously mentioned, the customer service is top notch as before you leave you will get a visit from one of the owners to ensure your visit a good one.

We loved it and will come again! It was quiet, great food, and solicitous service without being overbearing.
