We loved this place - and we eat a lot of Mexican food! The food is authentic Mexican rather than strictly Tex Mex, the servers are friendly and helpful and our food was delivered fresh, hot and fast! Wholeheartedly recommended.

This place is about as close as you're gonna get to abuela's home cooked meals. Everything from the service, to the free chips and salsa, to the actual meals was spot on. My wife ordered the shredded chicken quesadilla, and I ordered the Texas Plate (no.9). It came out relatively quick considering how busy they were on a Saturday night... More

My husband and I stopped in one afternoon to get a bite to eat. We decided to split a plate of nachoes. It was more than enough for the two of us. A nice clean friendly place to eat.

Coming here from out of town we consulted reviews. We were delightfully impressed! The food was delicious with plenty of selection; the service was good and always available. It's clear this restaurant is known to the locals - it's not something for the tourists but instead for those who want to "buy local" and enjoy local fare. Definitely worth coming... More

This is a good Mexican restaurant with great food and decent decor. Looks like a lot of locals eat hear which speaks highly to the quality and consistency. However, we didn't get much attention. Adequate, but not good service.

So my friend has been here before and he recommended we try it out for some good Mexican. It was very tasty, and filling. I had #18 which was 3 flautas, Spanish rice, beans, and guacamole. The rice was great I wish I got more of it. Given that we are in Texas, I expected good Mexican food and they... More

I went here yesterday to find my meal ready in no time smiling faces clean atmosphere and very helpful staff. I will be back due to the cleanliness of the restaurant and not much dirt on the floor. No one had an attitude or problem when I asked for anything. That's the way it's supposed to be. A+ guys keep... More
