I have eaten here 4 times plus takeout twice. Food is excellent..maybe best Mex food I have had in years. I would recommend it to anyone who likes Mex. food. It is very busy on weekends, so if you like very good service, a slower time of the week would be best.
Bit of advice: don't fill up on the free natchos and sauce....you will want to eat your meal !!

stopped here early Sunday evening. greeter & server were competent but not overly hospitable (long day?). lots of choices on the menu. portions were big but good prices. this is not strictly Mexican food, as there are Spanish style dishes, too. had the stew meat plate and wife had a large salad. she thought the skinny margarita was great. worth the stop.

Big menu with lots of choice, but nothing special about this place compared to other Mexican restaurants. Service was above average, which is what sets this place apart from others. Overall, a quick and easy meal, but don't expect great food.

great little accidental find......
service is super friendly and aimed at pleasing you 100%! each person receives their own salsa, plenty of chips and water upon being seated.
menu offers many items from the typical to the unusual.
we ordered a pitcher of beer, only $15 - so cheap, a combo plate and the spanish style snapper vericruzana.
everything, was delicious, well prepared and served hot! the snapper was SO good, with sauce similar to a sofrito. moist, flaky and flavorful.
the combo platter had a chile relleno, taco and enchilada along with beans and rice.....loved it all.
ordered the fried ice cream for dessert.....crusted in graham crackers, then piled high with corn flakes and butterscotch sauce. a little different than i'm used to, but good. tricky to eat out of the parfait glass, so we just dumped it out on the plate - server said that was so smart to do, makes it easier to eat.
the restaurant is nicely decorated, clean and well lit. easy to find off of the main road.....we really liked it!
