Nice Mexican food and prices. Staff friendly. If you don't find exactly what you like, they will try to make whatever it is you are wanting if they have it.

Location has we talked down hill drastically. Used to be called El Camino, but since a name change. Inside in bad repair, very run down. Food is average at best, and service is extremely poor. I won't be back unless location goes thru major clean up.

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?

They have wonderfully seasoned chicken and give you large serving sizes for little money. They food tastes great. Great food at a great price- what more can you ask for? The only thing I think could be better is the floor and seats feel like they need cleaned better. The floor is a little slick at times. I have visited... More
