Service was slow and the place wasn't packed, our waitress wasn't really listening / paying attention, but the food was a bit saltier than I'm used to in Mexico and TX, and tortillas were not homemade.

Great service, good food. Homemade salsa was yummy, but the guacamole was just ok. I ordered the homemade tamale, it was good but not great. The rice and beans were really good, my husbands fish tacos were good.

Wonderful atmosphere and food. It is always a good sign to see locals at a restaurant. The food was superb, and the margaritas were excellent.

We ate here three times and the nachos were so good that I didn't feel the need to order anything other than that. My friend had enchiladas which were also excellent. A word of warning--don't think you can finish a whole order of nachos by...More
