I ate there yesterday. It was very good, but I was told that they were closing this location. Today there are signs to that effect. CLOSED

Stopped in for a light lunch. We each ordered a different combination plate. Both were very generous portions. The soup was very different - sort of a tomato base with tiny noodle. It's a Mexican specialty. The restaurant had a huge salsa bar with several...More

Could serve a bit more food, instead of just onions, covering the whole plate. Smells kinda funky in the seats by the back.

!Chicken Fajitas with beans and rice served in a bowl with corn tortillas and guacamole served on the side, is awesome. To drink "Horchata..is like dessert".

The food was good, but they had a lot of flies and the place did not appear clean.. Too bad because the fajitas and tortillas were good. Maybe better as a takeout..
