The food was basic Mexican fare but was spicier than expected. The special dinner included enough food for at least 2 people. The pork chili con carne was excellent - smoky and spicy. Service was pretty fast and the food was served steaming hot. Two...More

This is a solid choice for a good Mexican dinner. The service was great and the food was out quickly. I have had better food but you can't go wrong here. The enchiladas were decent size and I got full. I would go here again.

Had dinner here with my wife, a work colleague, and her husband last night. The shrimp burrito I had was so very good. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their food too. I'll be back some time

Good food, fast service, no long waits. El toriado and green pork chili with margaritas are really good.

I had some bad Mexican food before, but this takes the cake. I had three items on my plate, a relleno, beef burrito and beef enchilada. The red sauce on all three tasted like Italian marinara sauce.... bland and horrible as ever. The only difference...More
