This is a fine restaurant with a warm and friendly atmosphere. The staff / servers are top notch. The food is very tasty and the beer is cold. I suggest this over Don Pedro's just outside of town.

Very tasty Mexican food. The prices are high for Mexican dishes. The chips and salsa were very good. They serve very cold beers. It is worth the price to get the good food

The food is fantastic. It's served fresh and hot. I love the bean dip and salsa. The Chimichanga is one of my favorite dishes, as well as their fajitas.

This restaurant wasn't much to look at from the outside so we had our doubts but decided to go in anyway. We weren't disappointed. Although not the best Mexican restaurant I've ever eaten at, the food was good, albeit a little bland, and the portions...More

Watered down americanized Mexican food. I was disappointed. This is food that even the most timid eater would enjoy. I prefer more authentic and flavorful, even spicy. The food wasn't bad, just not very authentic, and I'm a pretty good critic of good Mexican food....More

I had the chicken mole and it was ok. We got a sample of the green chili and it was very flavorful but not spicy at all. Overall it was ok.
