We have had many big events here, two of them family get togethers after a funeral. This is by far our favourite Mexican restaurant in town. We eat it so often. I only wish the prices were cheaper so we could eat it more often.

Changed the name, but at the same location. The food is a little authentic and a little tex-mex in style. I love their sangria margaritas, flautas, and their Mexican shrimp cocktail.

This is one of the few sit down restaurants in town where you can get in and out in a one hour lunch while enjoying hot, delicious food. My co-worker and I are in so often they usually greet us with our normal drink order!...More
