Since 1977 our family has enjoyed serving great food in a clean, comfortable atmosphere. Everything is prepared fresh in our kitchens. We only use the finest ingredients, and no lard is used in our beans and frying oil.

I love this restaurant! I always feel like I'm at home coming here. The staff is super friendly and love how they keep bringing chips, no matter how many you finish :) love this place!

I brought home half my burrito and found a sizable piece of plastic in it. I really can’t recommend.

What a cute family-style place. Liked we were seated quickly, responsive and quick servers produced food and drinks with a smile, very personable. The lobster enchilada was delicious, and we'll be back. Coconut margarita was very flavorful.

Previously we received great service so decided to go again. This time service was a challenge and food quality under par. May be because it was crowded because of the Oktoberfest event outside.... The beers and margaritas are good, but they need to make better Sangrias. Other than that is good place for dinner.

I asked for a hot tea and the cup my hot water was in was dirty. There was residue at the bottom. Food took an extremely long time and they weren’t even busy.

I ordered a hot tea and the cup was dirty. There was residue on the bottom of the cup with things floating in the water. Not impressed. Lighting is so dark that I had to use my iPhone flashlight.

Four of us went for a double date and had an amazing time. I am vegetarian and often get tired of the unimaginative choices for us - this place was amazing. Such creative takes on the food with the right sized portions. We all got appetizers, main courses, and desserts and were not disappointed. I will definitely be coming here again.

It took forever to get the food and it didn’t come out together. Some of it seemed like it had been sitting under heat lamps for a long time. One order was actually wrong and when the correct item finally arrived, it was the freshest plate served. I don’t know if the problem was the kitchen or wait staff but we would think twice before coming back. There are plenty of more reliable Mexican restaurants in the area.

We celebrated our daughter’s 12th birthday there and it was great!! Everyone, from the hostess to our server, was super accommodating and helpful, making the occasion that much more enjoyable. We will be returning there very soon and encouraging people to have celebrations there.

The tacos are the best things about this place! Although he service is great, it was disappointing having to eat stale chips while waiting for our food. The food, thank goodness, hasn’t disappointed to hopefully we won’t have stale chips next time.

This is a decent little Mexican restaurant- , poorly lit, dark interior, but comfortable. Hostess and wait staff were competent. We waited approximately 10 minutes after our designated reservation time. Menu has something for everyone. Margaritas looked great. Good family spot
