This was my first time here and I'll definitely be back! I got the Beef Chimichanga with rice that was excellent. The favor of the seasoned beef was delicious. I also got a Tamale on the side that was cooked very well, and the sauce that covered it complemented it nicely. I really liked the fact that when I asked for hot sauce, instead of giving me some generic store brand I got a squeeze bottle of homemade got sauce that actually had a little heart to it. The only reason I don't give 5 stars is because I wish the portion size would have been just a little bigger.

If you are health conscious I would recommend that you take a look at their sanitation grade before you sit down. Having a low 90s rating for any restaurant is very serious. If it wasn't for the low sanitation grade, I would rate higher, but I prefer my food to be prepared in a cleaner environment.

Some of the best Mexican food ever! The cheese dip had some spice to it very good. Restaurant was clean and well kept. In all a great meal!

It was good but the scenery is not appealing. The food was good and the waiters were nice.

I debated what Mexican restaurant to go to as a visitor in the area. I didnt want the fake, Mexican-inspired food that is so common, I wanted authentic. I debated for over an hour, when I finally drove down... as soon as I saw the building I felt like I made the right decision. When I walked in and saw the employees I knew I made the right decision. I ordered, it was quick about 10 mins. Unfortunately I had to make another stop. When I finally got home to sit down and eat it was a bit different than I'm used to from authentic Mexican spots I've been to in CT. I thought it was gonna be soggy and nasty, but despite being more moist than I like, the deluxe burritos were very good and I cant wait to dig into the rest. Update: I got the #25. I couldnt tell the different between the two bigger things but they were good. Taco was good too. Chips were bland, salsa was ok. Chips and salsa was the weakest link but I was very satisfied with everything else

Delicious! Well priced and friendly service too. I am editing my original post as there does seem to be some significant issues when differentiating between lunch and dinner as well as delivery. I normally go here funch lunch (in restaurant) and it is always amazing. However, I have had several issues as of late with online ordering, and my first dinner experience. I would say they were completely different restaurants.
