We ate here after using our GPS to find a Mexican restaurant. It was more of a take-out place than we expected,but the food was good. A huge chicken quesadilla that was loaded with chicken & cheese, but not what we usually have seen before....More

I bought food to take back to hotel.. It was nice and hot and great food. Good price for the amount of food you get.

Stay far away from this morbid hole. The worst customer service with rude workers. Had to stand and wait for our food before being able to pay. Had to carry our own food to the table. Food was absolutely disgusting. Chicken was way overcooked and...More
