Food is great and service is good. Take out is available for a small charge. Pick a few of the samplers and share. More than generous amounts of food. Food is always fresh and hot. Lunch specials on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Freshly made Mexican dishes with good service. The establishment may not be all that pleasing to look at but the food is good. Try it for good food at the pretty low price.

This restaurant is excellent and decently priced. The portions are large and the food came out nice and hot. My husband was craving the pork carnitas a week after our first visit, so we had to return. The atmosphere is nothing special, but the food...More
