    We came here simply because we needed a hot meal after 8:30pm on a weekday night, and most everywhere else was closed or closing. We weren't expecting such kind, attentive service -- I think I must have been asked five times whether I wanted a refill on my drink! The food was just as you'd expect from a family Mexican diner, the restaurant was clean and well maintained. But the service was certainly five stars -- I've been to very fine restaurants where the waitstaff were far less attentive.

    Waited an hour and a half for the food. The staff was nice, kept us in chips and salsa and refills on beverages. The vegetarian menu is terrible. Usually we just order something and leave out the meat but they had a nice little selection of veggie options on the menu so we did that. Big mistake. The spinach enchilada was 99% spinach and nothing else. My mother attempted to mix the rice and beans she got with it to attempt to eat some of it. The menu says it's supposed to have onions, tomatoes, mushrooms etc... nope. The avocado tostada was a corn tortilla with black beans on top, like you just opened a can of black beans and dumped them on a corn tortilla juice and all, then a 2-3 inches of shredded cabbage with half an avocado cut up on top and a little salsa poured around with a dab of sour cream on top. It's supposed to be served with rice and beans, it was not. I ate maybe 5% of mine. Still left the staff a tip, not their fault. I appreciate a restaurant attempting veggie options, but at least serve them as described on the menu.

    Great service and delectable food! Very authentic Mexican style. My wife and I enjoyed the horchata water. Everything is super clean and super friendly. We enjoyed every little piece of our food.

    I got one of the Camerones options, wrapped in bacon. Very tasty. I enjoyed the meal, the chips, salsa, beans. I liked the decor, comfy seating, clean bathrooms. My only complaint was the service. There were some long delays between when we received our drinks and when she took our order. The food came out quick, but she didn't bring refills or really check on us until she brought the bill and then of course she was quick and punctual to come back and pick it up. The delays were long enough to be noticeable and they weren't particularly busy. Besides that I enjoyed my time there.
