Super friendly and efficient staff serves up a great meal. Pick your own salsas at the bar and add the heat that suits you. Not a beautiful building but terrific food makes it a great stop.

Excellant Mexican Food and great service. Not your ordinary meal with beans and rice. Chips were served with bean salsa not your usual salsa.
