Ate here with friends on recommendation and our experience was pretty meh. Smoothies were good but the food was boring. Prices were reasonable and service was good.

Came in today for a later lunch and got the combo plate(relleno, enchilada and taco). Fantastic guacamole and excellent fresh salsa. Sweet atmosphere, friendly service, and exactly what I hoped for food wise. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch and will be back again soon! Thanks!
