Always consistent and very delicious. Always a to go box is required because portion sizes are more than one can consume in one sitting. The green Salsa, fresh thin chips and avocado enchiladas are my fav.

Even tho the immediate seating sign was flashing, it would have been a very long wait. We went to Vans just down the street. There was no wait for All 8 of us!

Never have service quite this good, food is always wonderful, best fajita meat I've ever had, and the sloppy tecates are amazing, we try to go at least a couple times a month, and it's a 30 minute drive

Authentic Mexican food. My personal fav is there green sauce (spicy guacamole). 3 stars only because in recent times the quality of food has gone down just a little bit, earlier I would eat here almost every week. Friendly staff and very open to input.
