Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food, especially for the money Aug 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A ridiculous amount of food for the money. The place looks like a tiny little no nothing "dive" on the outside but be prepared to be amazed!! The staff is charming and the food is unreal. I sampled 5 different taco's and they ranged from good to great. My husband had their paprika rubbed grilled chicken dinner. His son had an enchilada type meal... all memorable! They both had 1-2 beers and I had 2 of the best Margarita's I've had in years! All tolled for $45.00 (oh yeah... and chips and salsa too!).
