It definitely wasn't bad, but there are a few Mexican restaurants in the area I would rate higher. El Cerro Grande and La Costa are both much better.

Delicious food and an ample portion. We were pleasantly surprised by the entire meal. It is not your typical fast food Mexican restaurant.

This is our go-to spot for Mexican food. Mainly because we live so close but the food is usually always spot on. Hawaiian chicken and ACP are the best in my opinion. Definitely recommend if you like "American" Mexican food. (Meaning they give you free...More
