This restaurant is in the corner of a row of stores, and is not easy to see from the road. The restaurant was bright, and welcoming. The chimichangas were yummy, and we would go back.

I'd highly recommend checking this place out! The food and service was excellent. The place itself was clean and nicely decorated. Please don't judge this place from the outside, go in and try the authentic Mexican food!

If you don't look for it, you could miss it, but please look! This is real Mexican food, the re-fried beans are not the standard stucco texture, but the way they should be made. Friendly, helpful wait staff. Tasty.

Food was very bland and greasy. Quality of ingredients sub par. But we were hungry enough that it was OK but wouldn't have to go back. Servers were nice. The flan was very disappointing. It was served with a chocolate sauce! Yuck!
