Eat here. Great Mexican food. Daily buffet is a steal. George's salad is my favorite. Everything made fresh.

I take first-time guests here knowing that the service will be excellent, the food delicious and atmosphere perfect for catching up with friends over an unhurried meal. The lunch buffet during the week is excellent, with many great Mexican dishes.
