Service was very fast and friendly. Chips and salsa came with the meal and the salsa was pretty good. I had the chicken chimichanga. The chimi was wonderful. I would very much recommend this restaurant

We have always eaten here even since it was in a tiny old building on one of the main streets in downtown years ago. We barely got there before close but they told us we would be treated just like their first customer. Our favorite...More
