Wow, make sure you get the three taquitos appetizer . Original and the best I have ever had. They came in a sauce with melted cheese and the beef was superb.

A great little place for excellent Mexican food that doesn't taste like every other Mexican restaurant. I love a place that actually prepares their food from scratch, giving it that unique home-made flavor. One of my biggest complaints with Mexican restaurants is that it often...More
