Waited on timely manner. Average. Waiter served and never returned. Only one other table occupied. Inexcusable!

Ate here while in town for our anniversary. The place was packed but the service was fast. The food was very good. Two of us ate dinner for less than twenty bucks. Great meal for about what you pay for fast food.... hard to beat.

I love this place. It reminds me perfectly of a Mexican restaurant back home. The service is quick, the food is great, and best of all, the prices are low! It's a wonderful lowkey place to go for lunch.
