We (4) came for lunch and each had one of the 7 under $7 specials. Service was great, food ok, but we all left with a feeling that we could have had better somewhere else- Like LaFluentes or La Carreta -and it would have been cheaper. Chips are great and waitress kept ours full!

the food is fairly generic tasting and over priced for sure, I won't be going back. We have other much better and less expensive mexican restaurant options, sorry :(
