Have eaten there many times, but it has made HUGE improvements over the past 5 or so years. Stopped going for a while bc it was just dirty! Met my college roommate there recently. Food and atmosphere was spot-on.

This was by far one of the worst experiences at a restaurant. If you want to call it that. The food was luke warm, poor service and no manager to even voice a complaint to. The floors were covered with food, ripped carpets and ripped...More

We found this place completely by accident, and it looks like a bit of a dive when you first walk in but don't be fooled by the authentic Mexican atmosphere, the food is really tasty and is a really good value. We had chicken and...More
