I wandered in and was delighted by the colorful ambience and friendly greeting. Upon ordering a few appetizers, I was warned that maybe it was too much, but it was all delicious, especially the Mango Margarita with a spicy lollipop!

We LOVE this place! True, AUTHENTIC Mexican food and a staff that will make your visit a good one.The micheladas and margaritas are the best in town. Small family owned restaurant. The table side guacamole extra spicy was outstanding!

This truly is a "family restaurant". It is run by family and it is good family friendly dining. Everything is well prepared and they make the guacamole fresh for right at your table! All things combined, this is our new family favorite for Mexican food!
