My favorite Mexican restaurant!!! The service is very quick and you get your food quickly!! The chips and salsa is fresh and amazingly good especially the white salsa! My favorite dish is the shrimp quesadilla, the shrimp are big and it's full of them!!!!

I stopped by for dinner and it was great. The chips and salsa was homemade. They brought a regular salsa (liked), and a white salsa (did not like). I recommend requesting queso blanco (white cheese), which was awesome with the chips. I ordered a #1...More
