Restaurant has been out of business for sometime now- this site needs to be removed off Trip Advisor. Drove by tonite- looks like they may be even totally demolishing the bldg.

I just don't see why people keep coming to this place. They always get your order wrong, and they have Mentally challenged people for wait staff. They're shut down now, so yay!

Food and service were great! Cheese and onion enchiladas were awesome. The Brownie Skillet was to die for! The prices were much better than what we have at home also. Try the enchilada dinner special on Wed. 's for $3.99! Our new favorite Mexican Restaurant!
