The restaurant serves authentic Mexican food and is not of the fast food variety. Their carnitas and carne asada is very good as is their nacho plate and Tuesday night tacos special. It would be nice if the workers were a bit more fluent in English but they know the basics, just don't get too fancy with requests in English... More

Food is really good here, and they have always had great service. I have never had to wait to long, and they also do takeout.

This restaurant is near our home so we go there often and are never disappointed. Nicely furnished and there is a patio area. You order at the counter and get your own drinks but they bring your order to your table. The staff have always been pleasant and helpful. Good place to eat.

I have never been treated so rudely. I was greeted with an eye roll. Huffed at when I started to order, she then looked at me like I was crazy, and then cut me off after every part of my order trying to get me to just pay and shut up. She obviously didn't even pay attention, because the WHOLE... More

I've been here about half a dozen times recently. It was good every time. Today I had a Chili Verde Burrito. Nice and tangy, the pork was slightly on the salty side but very tasty. I have had Chicken Tacos, Carne Asada and more. Service is good even when busy. Atmosphere is sports bar - ish with an outside patio.... More

Tried the fajitas and the beef was so dry. Staff was not particularly friendly either. Just ok, not great.

Great food at a very reasonable price. Not a fancy place. ... just nice. Not a sit down and order place. They do deliver to your table and the silverware is plastic. Good service.

Originally I made reservations for Bistro West but after my mother had her massage she wanted to just relax. This place was located inside the complex of where we stayed. The food was great and they gave large portions for the money.
