Granted that we chose Cinco de Mayo for our first visit, but we did arrive past the dinner rush. The place was still very busy. The first omen was that their front sign wasn't even lit up, so only locals would find it easily. We...More

We ate here on a recommendation and found the food to be pretty average Mexican food. The tacos and enchiladas were a little better than average, but the chile relleno was not good at all. The service was slow to start but got better as...More

We were looking for a Mexican restaurant with a margarita. Drove past here because it looked too small, but came back just in case. Happy we did. Nice sit-down family environment. House margarita VERY good. Super tostada was only a 3-4, but we will come...More

3 of us were in the area and felt like Mexican food. This was a good choice. Cheese crisp w/ guac to start (delicious) and then green chili burro (burrito diablo) tostadas and a combo plate. Good portions, friendly service.
