Had been told this quiet Mexican Restaurant was a hidden gem in the Big Lots/Zorba's shopping center. Authentic Mexican with a little USA thrown in. We had the Chicken Fajitas for two. It was absolutely fantastic! We had enough to bring home for lunch tomorrow....More

Food is the typical Mexican you can get anywhere around town run by a nice lady, Cecilia. The service is a little slow- refills have to be asked for a they aren't very intensive or talkative. Not impressed with their queso dip (queso lover here)....More

The food has an authentic Mexican taste, unbelievably good. I'm from Texas, and there are many Mexican restaurants but none compare to this type of food. The service as well is excellent!!! The price as well is good, definitely worth every cent. Highly recommended 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼

We were a group of 6 that ordered a variety of selections, taco salad, seafood enchiladas, quesadillas, tacos,and so forth. All where exceptionally good. Drinks were refilled without asking. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. A must stop if you want authentic Mexican food.
