Not good Mexican. Way too salty. I Had Chile Relleno and it was salty and had the wrong cheese. Others had taco's and they were, I'm sorry to be a one note song, salty and not flavorful.

We had to wait for about half an hour to be seated. The food was delivered quickly after ordering and tasted great. Large portions - none of our party was able to clear their plates. Would recommend.

Was a little wary based on some of the recent reviews. But we’re happy to report our whole family really enjoyed the food and drink here. The table side guacamole was great. The drinks generous and reasonably priced. The food hit the spot and nobody...More

We really wanted to like this place - the decor is wonderful and the waitress was friendly, and we love Mexican food! However, the salsa was appallingly awful. At first I thought it was ketchup when it was put on the table. I asked if...More
