This place closed after years of struggling. Food was ok but poor management took its toll. When our kids were little, they loved eating here as did I. Wide variety. Now there a no real good Mexican places left in Peoria to eat at :)

Not a big Mexican food fan; tried the cantina burger. ..frozen patties with weak sauce...bun was bigger than 2 patties put together. ..frice were warm, but by no means hot. If not for my sister liking it, would never come here.
