I wish I could nail down what they put in the food that makes it more delicious than all the others, but it really is. If it weren't in such a congested area with limited parking I would go much more often. The parking and tight seating will not deter me from returning. We were there at 5:30 and it... More

Best Mexican place I have ever been to with very large portions and free salsa and chips. Make sure to try the fajitas!

We have enjoyed this place many times. The food is great and everything is quality. There are a good many Hispanic patrons and they seem to know the best stuff to order. I see amazing dishes passing by my table and many times I ask the waitress, "what was that, it looked great." This is a great place. Parking is... More

This is a hidden gem with good food at a great price. The chips and regular salsa are "o-kay." Much of the tex mex is "very good," but the outstanding offerings are the more authentic dishes. My fave is the carnitas (mini tacos with marinated pork, onion and cilantro on corn tortillas) with the special green sauce. A friend of... More

A very popular traditional cafe style Tex Mex. If you want excellent food in relaxed surroundings at a reasonable price this is the place for you.
