Please don’t pass by this restaurant because of its less-than-perfect exterior; inside, it is very nice and the service is superb. The main entrance is in the back near the parking lot. If you walk in from the front, then proceed to the back left...More

We stopped in for a late lunch. The place was a little run down outside. Inside was clean and had a good feel. The service was spot on and very friendly. The food was good, hot and plenty of it. Would go again.

This place is just so warm and friendly! The staff always makes us feel like family. The food is great! I love the shrimp enchiladas! Great margaritas too! Very reasonably priced.

We went there to try the enchiladas and were not disappointed. They have an option for a 3rd enchilada with beans and rice instead of only 2... just say NO! too much good food to eat that way if you get 3. I will only...More

This was a great restaurant. We went for a little bit of an earlier dinner, got seated quickly and order came fast. I ordered enchiladas and mentioned that the last place we ate at brought me greasy enchiladas. After I had eaten some of my...More
