This is our second time to eat here. The food is delicious! The service is wonderful ! Very friendly and attentive ! Complimentary sopapillas that are served with honey. They have a very large buffet , but we have only ordered from the menu.

We were seated promptly in huge dining room. Chips didn't taste fresh but salsa was nice. The $11 buffet was expansive. Good service even though it was lunch time.

Buffet was not great. They do have a good fruit bar though and a decent salad bar but the hot bar was mediocre. Nothing was labeled so you were unsure what anything was or had in it. Service was good. I wouldn't go back though.

Just passing through, makes me want to pass through again and again! We ordered burritos and my kids had the buffet, we were all satisfied and felt well taken care of by the staff. A great experience.

Family run serving excellent food. They have a buffett or you can order off the menu. We were greated by 2 of the owners and seated. We all had the buffet which had a large variety of mexican dishes and a fruit and salad bar. They even made a grilled cheese sandwich with fries (homemade, not frozen) which isn't on... More

Both my husband and I went here from a recommendation of the hotel. The food was delicious! We loved both our meals. We did not try the buffet but it looked very appealing with a variety of foods and lots of fresh fruit and salad. I had the tacos carne asada which were delicious and my husband had the burrito...

I totally disagree with the poor rating given previously by someone else. We were just passing through and stopped for a late lunch. We usually don't do a buffet, but this looked amazingly good. What first attracted me was their salad bar, replete with a wide variety of fresh cut fruit. I enjoyed mango, papaya, kiwi, strawberries, and more, with... More

From the moment we walked in we were treated like honored guests. Seated promptly and the service was impeccable. The food was great, the chili rellenos pie was one of the best things I've ever eaten--we ordered seconds...and thirds. Don't miss this one

We chose to get menu items and not the buffet. My wife's food was better than mine, but both were good. I had a shrimp dish. Busy but no line or wait. Drink specials were priced alright. Clean and authentic Mexican décor.

Don't do it, I usually follow trip advisor's reccomendations and love them. This one not so much. Maybe it was that it was after lunch time but the buffet was poor quality, nothing was labeled, and I was sick after eating. Everything seemed stale and like it had been sitting for awhile. Seriously gross food and pricey for what it... More
