Fun for a change from regular Mexican food. Reasonably priced. Fast quality service with scratch made food. Affordable lunch break form Crossroads Shopping Center.

We did take out and the food was just average. The cashier and cooks in the kitchen were very friendly but it doesn't make up for the food....unfortunately.
