ordered the chicken taco. Nice sized serving but the taco was fried. The refried beans and rice looked "tired". I did not enjoy my food. My boyfriend ate his burrito but said it was "just ok"

The restaurant is located on D. St right next to Arco gas station. Large parking lot is conveniently available for customers to park. We are located in the courtyard of the large medical building. Please don't let the location fool you. We have very nice outdoor seating as well as indoor. Perfect place to bring your kids or even your dog. Laid back polite friendly service. Family owned and operated since 1979 in this same location!
