The tropicana fajita & California burrito were unlike any we have had before- both delicious. $5.99 for strawberry daiquiri, $3.29 for a Corona. The decor is the best we have seen in a Mexican place. Service is a bit slow but no big deal. Clean.

Hands down, the best place to go for authentic Mexican food in town. I've been going here for over 6 years and never had a bad meal. The servers are all friendly and the food is exceptional
