This restaurant never fails. The food is always good and prices are excellent. The Texas fajitas convinced an avowed "hater" of Mexican food that he loves it LOL. The staff is very nice and helpful.

I pass by about 3 other Mexican restaurants to eat lunch here. Always fast, the best Texas fajitas around, and a kind and consistent staff. Definitely recommend.
