My family treated me to a birthday lunch at my favorite Mexican restaurant. I've been coming here since it opened in it's original location back in the late 60's or early 70's. It is consistent l good and I've never been disappointed.

Stayed next door so it was convient to walk over. Dinner on a Friday night. Very Americanized. Service was bad. It was late at night and they didn't pay much attention. We had the fajitas for two, steak. Very normal. The side dish was cold,...More
