Been coming for years. I almost always get the chicken tamales (pork available too), but other selections are also very good. Tip: Black beans, if you prefer, are offered as alternative to refried beans. Service is always friendly and always bringing you plenty of tortilla chips, which are good. You will never go home hungry. Prices are not expensive, so... More

Had an enchilada beef plate and it was awesone! Always very consistent in how it's prepared, comes out on a plate hot, with refried beans and rice, and lettuce garnishment! Excellent meal for the price oh and plenty of chips and salsa that keep coming! When getting the chips comes with red salsa for spicier ask for the green salsa... More

I've been here a few times now and everything has been great! The food is always tasty and the servers are always very nice! You can tell they care about your dining experience as a customer. Last time I got the fish tacos with corn and they were to die for! Also try the sangriaritas which are half sangria and... More

I have been here a few times... with groups after my initial trip because I would NEVER choose it myself. The food is overpriced and bland. I LOVE Mexican food, so to be a ta place where I didn't even finish the rice and beans with my meal says a lot. Go somewhere else...the food here is NOT good.

Great Food, Great Service but small parking lot. This restaurant has a bar side and sit down restaurant side, so good for the family or the bar crowd

I have been coming here for years and years and the food always has me coming back for more. I have tried everything on the menu but my favorite has to be the Discada. They have streamlined their menu, which I find easier to read since big menus can feel overwhelming!! I am happy to find that although the menu... More

Have been here numerous times and the quality of food is becoming less authentic. Price is OK for what seems to come from a can.
