This place is soooo good! I'm originally from Arizona and I'm always looking for authentic Mexican food - this place has it. It has a Salsa bar too. Delicious tacos and enchiladas. Check it out! You will be glad you did.

Fantastic food at inexpensive prices and service was quick. Free refills on chips and plenty of salsa choices to go along with the chips. Great place for lunch or dinner.
