First time here. Great place to eat. I had the Fajita Nachos Texanas. Way too much food for 1 person. Makes 2 meals for a cheap price.

The best the best the best if you want authentic Mexican, this is the place you want to be. Prices are fair, portions are huge and the chips and salsa flow freely. Servers hosts and even bus persons are top notch. Very clean always a hit. We eat there weekly.
