This place is always busy. It is a family owned chain. The food is Mexican and good. The drinks are cold and good. We go for late lunches when we visit. Food is fairly priced.

We are here tonight and had a great meal. I had the California chicken and my wife had the carnitas. Lots of food and both were great. Kids did the kids menu and that was very reasonably priced. Strongly recommend a night here.

Their chicken soup is worth the trip. Chips and salsa was also great as were the margaritas. Unfortunately I thought the tacos were pretty ordinary.
