There seems to be a thousand versions of Mexican food across the states. This menu features the tried and true options- burritos, tacos, chimichangas, and quesadillas. The dishes were warm and flavorful, but a little too greasy. The quesadilla was just a flat pizza covered in cheese and a layer of grease. The service was great - attentive and friendly.... More

Great value brunch here. Just across the road from our sons house so we thought we'd give it a try. All you can eat and unlimited mimosa's or Bloody Marys for $15!! Great quality food and drink and very attentive service. Have already penciled in a visit when we're back in town ;later this year.

I've been coming to this restaurant since i was 7, so about 20 years now. The same waiters have been with the company since i was a kid and are still just as friendly and amazing at the job they do. The food has never lost it's authentic taste and I'm happy that they have never changed their salsa since... More

1st. Time here. We met friends for dinner and drinks. Not our kind of place. They have been open since 1969 I believe the menu said. It's a basic diner for locals. Food was ok and drinks ok. Get the large margarita it's worth $9.75. Service was good. Dinner for two 3 drinks 1 nachos 1 guacamole $75. Gave nice... More

Also enjoyed the atmosphere. It's always good to walk into a Mexican restaurant and hear everyone speaking Spanish!

This restaurant was designed for locals; modest prices, convenient location, quick service and predicable menu. Chicken enchiladas were tasty. The meat was not as white or as chunky as I prefer but it was hot and fast. Wife's salad with guacamole was good and large. No complaints on taste either. Both meals were filling. With the free chips they brought... More

Ate here twice with hubby and old friends. Lunch was really good, service was fast and efficient. Prices were a little higher than expected, but not outrageous. Dinner was even better. Service was really good and friendly, food was good too. Friends were from Illinois and Alabama so they don't know good Mexican food from so-so, and they only like... More

Was visiting from out of state and had GrubHub deliver after a long day with family. The food was surprisingly very good. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because it was very pricey. For 2 meals, it was $45, including tip. A side of chips & salsa was $5.50. Double-checked prices on their website and it was... More

Been here a couple of times now, and I hard a hard time between 3 & 4 stars... the food is good, not great....there are other local places I feel that do have better, more authentic Mexican or even Tex/Mex food nearby. The service has been hit and miss, so 3 stars... Not a bad place, don't get me wrong.... More

This place has been around forever! It is the best Mexican food hands down. The Grandpa chicken salad, which is served in a flour tortilla bowl is amazing. So much chicken. The chili verde is the best ever. No one can compare. The chips are fresh, you get two kinds of salsa, that we always mix together to make it... More
