The Best

This is the best Mexican food I have had in the US. The tamales and fried chicken tacos are wonderful. Be sure to have the flan for desert!

Great atmosphere, great food and lots of fun!!!!

For over the past 2 years this place has become a Friday ritual for me, my best friend and her two kids (age 3 and 5).

Starting early in the evening around 5:30 you are greeted by friendly staff and asked if you want to sit inside or on the patio. You are given little round wooden chips with numbers written on them, these are used on the top of the hour where they spin a wheel and if your number is called you win anything from a free bottle of beer to a t-shirt.....this is always
...view more exciting and fun because it gets all the patrons involved!!!

They give crayons and to the kids to color and offer a great kids menu. The adults, of course, start with a Reales Margarita (my friends favorite) or a delicious Sangria (my choice). We order some delicious guacamole and chips for the table and start our fabulous evening at the restaurant that we have lovingly start to call ""The Taco Place""

The staff is very friendly and the food is great. some of my favorites are the ""Steak Taco, Chicken Taco and the Fish Taco"" there are so many other choices to pick from, but I always seem to rotate from these three!!!

By the time we have finished our food and drinks the atmosphere has subtly changed from a family environment, to a ""the place to be"" for the young and hip crowd!!!!

We always leave satisfied and happy knowing that we will be back in a week for another wonderful visit!!!

I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for great food, affordable prices, and a great place to eat!!!
