One and only Mexican Restaurant I frequent. Have been multiple times and always a favorite for out of town guests when they visit. The atmosphere I've found to be more of a sports bar than family dining. T.V.'s available all over to watch, movement is...More

In and out in under 20 minutes.... if that's really what you're looking for. We usually like to hang out for a little bit - and the staff is ok with that too. Friendly, smiling faces and tasty (always hot) food!

We celebrated a birthday with friends. First time to visit and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the dishes and attentiveness of the staff. We didn't wait for service or seating yet it was busy. Would definitely return when in the area.
