This is the "dive bar" version of a local style of food known as "Win-Chexican". Mexican food Americanized to the point of total blandness. Cheap prices, so if you're broke and hungry, this is an option. If you're eating with buddies, and wanting to drink,...More

Best food, but the place needs to be upgraded. I love their food, but the place can be unappealing some times. Service is always top notch.

Ate here for lunch. Horrible atmosphere. Place needs. Lots of repairs. Seats and tablecloths felt greasy. Restrooms were horrible. Just dirty and unkept. Food was average and service was quick. I would not eat here again.

The food is great. Service very friendly. They should do better on keeping place clean. Wash the seats and table cloths more than once a month?
