Pay by the weight buffet is perfect for a quick lunch to go! Includes chips and salsa. Ask for a small cup for queso! Never had a bad experience here.

Buffet available lunch and dinner. Food is excellent. I love several menu items. My husband prefers the buffet. This restaurant is a favorite of our local Hispanics. Some staff members speak limited English but all are helpful.
