My wife and I dine here frequently. The food is always very good and so are the margaritas. I usually get the enchiladas and my wife usually has tacos. It's out choice for authentic Mexican.

Each time I have visited the serving staff has been attentive and service has been prompt. The portions are more than adequate and the salsa choices are very tasty. The beer options are good and prices are fair. Live music at times.
