We decided to give this restaurant a try, the food was delicious, the chili was brought at the heat level we like, the Chorizo was the best we have had in a long time. Service was great, we truly enjoyed this restaurant.

We had margaritas, chips and salsa, and guac....we browsed the menu, but couldn't bring ourselves to order food. Service was friendly, but this is a typical hole-in-the- wall Mexican restaurant.
