We visit the restaurant during the winter months (off season) and many times get a "take out". The food is very delicious, plentiful and reasonably priced. Love the salsa! Service is excellent and very friendly.

Went there for lunch with a few people and the portions were generous for lunch. Corn chips instead of flour were good. Queso was a bit watery. They didn't have a vegetarian section as most Mexican places do :(
