We eat here at least once a week. I have never had anything I didn't like! The menu is HUGE! The pork chimichangas are second to none! The queso salsa and guac- alll fresh made! The staff very friendly and the service is prompt!!

Had to find a New Mexican restaurant since agave closed. The salsa was excellent you can tell us home made. My food was average, good not amazing. Very small space but clean and with a helpful staff. I'm willing to give it another chance, hopefully next time I'll be impressed.

This is one of my favorite places to go with friends! They have great vegetarian options and all the food is incredible! Would highly recommend stopping for a bite to eat! It gets very busy on the weekends so expect a wait! Cinco de Mayo is one of the most fun nights of the year at this restaurant! Enjoy!

Stopped in on a Saturday night at 6 expecting to wait an hour for a table and pleasantly surprised we were seated within 5 minutes. Had never been to this Mexican restaurant so the waiter made suggestions which were delicious. Service was really fast, food was super good, got plenty of food and very reasonably priced. Will definitely go back... More

Having read the glowing reviews, we were disappointed at our dining experience. Service, in a mostly empty restaurant on a Tuesday night, was slow and inattentive. Drinks around our entire table went dry. Food, from the nachos/salsa to our entrees, was bland and mostly tasteless. There was no follow-up from the server. Not a restaurant I'd give a second chance.

The food is good here. Try the guacamole azteka with a little salt and pepper will do the trick. Lets not forget the Modelo for that crazy thirst. I reccomend this place for all ages.

Well what can I say. As soon as you walk you are greeted with friendly smiling faces and with great music that it makes you feel you are actually in Mexico. I love it here and especially the Margaritas.
