We were downtown and stopped in after happy hour for dinner. The food and service were both very good. My husband had Fajitas and I had Chicken Enchilada's with Green Sauce. Everything was very flavorful without being spicy hot - just the way we like...More

We have gone here for 15 years and repeatedly LOVE what this place offers. From the salsas to the chili relleno to the Fajitas or Drunken burritos and sides of avocados. Love the cheese crisp - this is genuine Mexican fare (NOT Tex Mex). Fantastic...More

Mexican food isn't great unless the salsa is great! Mild, medium, and hot salsas made fresh. Attentive servers. Nice menu selection.

Friendly waiter is the best thing I can say. On a Sunday afternoon the place is virtually empty - now I know why. Margarita was fine. Enchiladas we're full of raw onions more so than chicken. Salsa was watery. Water pitcher on the table was...More

Food was average at best. Husband's enchiladas were loaded with raw onions. Ick! My shrimp/fish tacos were okay, but not worth the price. Rice & beans were extra, and beans were microwaved dry (no juice) in a small bowl. Why bother?? There's a reason this...More
