Great food and service. Reservations a must until a move to a new facility in mid April. Everything is excellent. Wish I lived closer to enjoy ore often.

This unassuming little Restruant in a strip mall has great food with generous portions! The only issue is parking can be a little tricky and reservations are highly recommended.

Have been many times to eat - both on dates with husband and with extended family - and always leave full and happy! They are busy and staff (literally) runs to provide great service - with a smile! Love the homemade salsa, fajitas, and always order the New Mexico Enchiladas 'Christmas-style' - combo of red and green chili The vegetarian... More

It's excellent and if for some reason it's not, they'll make it right. Fantastic food, friendliness and fun.

Incredible flavors, reasonable prices, really good service. Would have given it 5 stars except this was the second time there in two weeks and both times I had to flag down a waitress for a drink refill and both times I never got one.
