The menu is pretty standard Mexican fare. The quality is also pretty average. I had the carnitas. It wasn't as tender as in most places. The portions were generous though. Service was attentive. The wait wasn't very long.

This is one of our favorites in the area. Great price, good portion sizes and food is delicious. We usually split the Burrito Con Pollo Asado and the kids enjoy quesadillas. Chips, salsa, and queso to start. Well worth the trip.

Good Mexican food at reasonable prices. Full menu of the customary favorites. I prefer the simplicity of the tacos - each fresh ingredient can be tasted. Margaritas & beers are available as well.
