The wife and I wanted to go some where for a quick meal, so we tried it out, our oldest daughter said the food was good and the meal was inexpensive, so we tried it. She was correct, good authentic food at a cheap price

We eat here a lot. Mostly takeout. They are always on point. I always have the carne asada. It's amazing. My husband order different every time. He always loves it. The tacos are great. Their chips and salsa are fantastic.

Excellent Burritos or other Mexican style foods... you won't walk away hungry and will probably have enough left over for 2 meals!!!

Have been coming here for a long time. The chicken quesadillas, tacos and seafood soup are the best! Table service can be a bit spotty but always friendly. To go orders always quick. Enjoy!!

The food and service is always good. Very authentic Mexican in a "no Frills" atmosphere. The waitress/owner is terrific and helped my daughter with her Spanish project. This is our "go to" place when having our Mexican craving.
