We had a very negative experience here that prompts me to warn other people not to visit this place. We chose to eat here because my husband MUST eat gluten free and Mexican restaurants are usually among the easiest places to find an appropriate meal....More

This place is fantastic! They offer three kinds of beans! The rice is delicious. The food is yummy but if you're craving more flavor to add to it, go to their flavor bar! There's habanero sauce, hot sauce options, pico, green sauce, etc! Great place.
