Service and food were excellent. I had enchiladas supreme. One cheese, one beef, one chicken. It came with refried beans, sour crème, and guacamole. Chips and salsa were served as an appetizer with a red and white dipping sauce

Loved the food here. Guacamole was prepared table side and was delicious. Tacos, enchiladas, and quesadillas were outstanding.

When you first walk into the restaurant it is clean and has an authentic Mexican decor. The soda glasses are 32oz and I think that's to ensure that you won't ask for a refill unless you're a real soda drinker. I thought the food that...More
