I eat here often. The food and service are great. They offer a full bar with ice cold beer and the best margaritas around. Definitely worth stopping in.

This is a great place for true Mexican food. Good service and great food. We found this place because we had to stop at Shopco and were hungry. We like to try new restaurants because my husband is a Chef. Highly recommenced

My husband & I have been here several times, with nothing but praise for the great service and fantastic food. The burritos are really good, with a variety for all tastes.

Enjoyed a beautiful summer night on the patio. The menu is large but decided on the seafood chimichanga. Was expecting tiny shrimp but they were large and grilled with grilled peppers also. Also had the margarita which was tasty. The food is good and so is the service.
