The small restaurant has some of the best Mexican food we've ever had. The soft shell corn tortillas are authentic as is the seasoning and preparation of their tacos. For those who prefer something besides tacos, their chicken wrap is also exceptional. Amazing Mexican food!

Varied menu, and all the food we ordered was tasty and authentic. Their salsas were good and spicy too. A group of firemen came in while we were there and you know they are always food afficionados, so we know we made a good choice....More
