The food was very good and they had many items not typically found at your average Mexican eatery. However, prices are not amicable. My friend ordered fajitas and i the 2 taco lunch special wich arrived with 2 four inch soft corn shells. His plate was easily 2x the food for the same price. Do go but realize what you are paying for. I will return.

The food is always good. The waitress was nice and attentive. Nice atmosphere. It's always clean when I go inside. They have cute things for picture taking when you walk inside. Very decent pricing. It wasn't a long wait for food. I enjoyed dining here.

Excellent service! Huge portions and a friendly staff! I have been coming here for years and they never disappoint. Definitely recommend coming here with three family for a great meal. They also always have great drink specials as well.

I eat here on a regular basis because I love Mexican food. Trust me unless your drive down to Tijuana you won't find anything better, only driving South of the border will you find food if this caliber. It's authentic right down to the server LOL

Fairly standard low-to-middle Mexican place. The wait staff are friendly and efficient, and it's always clean.

Great, authentic, Mexican food.. always courteous and happy.. today was my 55 year old aunts birthday..(she has downs) . She said ONCE, it was her birthday, our waitress, Julie, came with the whole staff, at the end of our meal, and sang happy birthday to her. I should have mentioned they only had THREE waitresses for the whole restaurant, and it was pretty busy... great job to all the staff.. and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone..

Reasonably priced. My 1/2 Fajita was sizzling and nicely spiced. The wait staff could have been friendlier but it was early Sunday afternoon so a pass on that. I will definitely be adding this place to the rotation.

The food here is always amazing but served rather slow most days. I get seated almost immediately but do have to wait on some of the waitresses to come take my order or refill at times. The Huevos Mexicanos and Shrimp Fajita's are always my go to!

Portions are big, fair priced food. The waiter was a bit stressed, and took a long time to get our drinks, but over all the food was good. The waiting time was about 25 minutes after we ordered and the chips were almost stale but again I did enjoy the food.

They have a large menu and vegetarian friendly options. Service is friendly and prompt. Ask for the salsa verde, it has more flavor.
