Review from Yelp: “This place is probably one of the best Mexican place I’ve ever eaten at. The staff is sweet, and the restaurant itself is nice and clean. They start you off with chips and salsa which is ridiculously delicious! The salsa is spicy, but so so good! Once you start eating the salsa you won’t be able to stop..we asked for seconds and the lady was more than willing to give us more.”
