Really good food. The guacamole is the BEST, but be aware it's $10. It does come in a huge bowl, it's more for the table I guess. We loved it but were a little surprised when we saw the bill. ;) The carne asada fries...More

We've been here numerous times, and have never been disappointed. When the weather in nice, opt to eat on their outdoor patio. Even their tortilla chips and salsa are homemade. We've taken friends and family there, and they were just as impressed.

I love that fact they don't blare loud obnoxious mariachi music, but rather a classy soft sound that lets you talk and enjoy the environment. The steak ,chicken and shrimp tacos are great. Their sauces are awesome and add even more flavor to their tacos....More
