My food was delicious, the staff was friendly. Portions are generous. I honestly wasn't expecting much because of the area so I was pleasantly surprised by my meal. It's also very clean.

Early experiences were so-so but this place has now become our favorite Mexican Restaurant! We average about 3-4 times a month. Great taste, quality, and you don't leave hungry. A great local spot and great Mexican Food!

I think most Mexican restaurants are pretty much the same, but this little place surprised me. A bit of a hole in the wall, it offers a more unique take on flavors for standard fare than I normally find. It was a pleasant change from...More
