Our go-to restaurant when we're craving Mexican! Always great service and super fast. Their food is delicious and it's not overpriced like some Mexican restaurants. The servers are friendly and the margaritas are great (and strong)!

Ordered guacamole to start. Menu price shows small $4.95, large $7.95. Waiter states we changed our price, it's now $7.95 for small, $9.95 for large. Really? No sticker on the menu, no 'market price'. Just take the waiters word I suppose. Must be some damn...More

We had a party of 11. They accommodated us immediately. We all ate well. Service was great. Cost less than I would have expected. Definitely worth a return trip whenever I am back in the neighborhood.

Good, fresh, cheap Mexican food off Perring Parkway. I love their fish tacos, often eat the enchiladas. Their service is good, and you can not beat the price. Not fancy, but clean and family friendly.
