Visiting the area, I was working a 12 noon to midnight shift at a nearby power plant so all of my orders were take-out. I ate at Aureas every other, if not every day in a row. Now let me tell ya why... The staff was extremely cordial and the food was divine. I tried, loved, and stuck with 2... More

This is a low-budget Mexican place the caters to the local Hispanic population. They don't speak great English so you need to know what you want in order to get decent service. It's like an old diner.

We were in town for a funeral and found this place online with good reviews. I did a recon for the group as it looked a bit sketchy from the outside, once inside I thought it was a little drab as well. I was going to pass on it, but the group came in without my input and I am... More

This is a little whole in the wall place tucked in the backside of an old strip mall. The food is fine but the tables and chair are all old and the place caters to immigrants. The waitress didn't speak much English and I certainly felt out of place. If you want quick, hot Mexican food, it's fine but it's... More

Very small, clean place in an out of the way shopping center. Food is inexpenive, plentiful and well prepared. Staff is very friendly. This is my third time eating here and I have not been disappointed. I had this time a Quesadilla Asada, which came with Guacamole salad, Fresh, hot tortilla chips, homemade salsa and fresh coffee graced my table... More
