We were visiting here from Florida and have eaten many places but this is some of the BEST fajitas we have ever had. We had the chicken. Large portions and great service provided by Burt. Highly recommended.

Love the chunky salsa but my favorite was the seasonal Pumpkin Soup. That was the best I had ever tasted and never expected to find it in a Mexican restaurant. Must try it as it's only available in the Fall.

Matha was our waitress and she was excellent. She answered our questions kindly and efficiently. We had a wonderful dining experience and best of all I got to eat a stuffed poblano! It’s been years since I’d had one, and this was fantastic.

We thought the margaritas were delicious but were very disappointed in the food. My husband's burrito was just ok but nothing special. I ordered the enchilada trio platter. I found them bland and didn't finish them. Only positive is that I saw they have a...More
