This is kind of a hidden little gem. The main reason I know about it is because I shop for groceries across the parking lot from here. My daughter was visiting and we decided to go someplace for a Mexican meal. We chose this place...More

This is a favorite place to gather when some of us want to get together for dinner. They have a huge authentic menu and more choices than you can imagine. The food is always great and the service as well.

A large menu, cheerful waiter and awesome food. We stopped in for lunch and had an excellent meal. The festive Mexican music was playing and our waiter told us all the specials. Everything was good. We will be back for more. Plus the drink specials...More

We attempt to visit at least once a month. We always get the same dish, the nachos el carbón. The shrimp and beef are what sets this dish apart from any other nacho dish. The margaritas are simply delicious. I would go just for those,...More
