Have been here 100+ times and us always crowded. Food always good and cheap! Pretty decor with beautiful mural. Parking is tough!

Good food and good prices. It can get crowded and a little noisy, and sometimes parking can be a problem, but the food is worth it.

Had diner to satisfy a craving for Mexican food, ordered the steak and onions which cane with re-fried beans, rice and guacamole. The steak while flavorful was also more onions than steak, lots of rice and beans but for the price get something else. All together not a bad meal but not worth the price

The food is great, portions are large and the prices are reasonable. The atmosphere in the restaurant is comfortable and friendly. We often call in our order and pick it up and eat at home.

Just introduced to this restaurant and was very impressed. I do not live close to this restaurant but wish I did. The atmosphere is incredible and it feels like you are right in the heart of Mexico.

Excellent Food but there is a price and it's not monetary. Parking is non existent and the seating is just as bad when it's busy. It's best to come here off peak, otherwise, you will hate the experience, no matter how good the food is. Larger groups or families will have difficulty with the seating as it's first come first...

We have been going to this restaurant for many years when we lived in the area and still come a distance to have this authentic food. This is a well known restaurant as the lines are indicative of the food and the pricing. You order in line and then wait for your number to be called. Sometimes it is so... More

Great family style restaurant! Food was great, flavour of authentic Mexican fare with the place just mobbed with take-away and patrons dining in. Parking is difficult, as the location is nestled within a business area on a very busy road, but it is well worth the trek. Atmosphere takes you away to another place as you listen to the conversations... More
