Concern that many of the dishes are becoming more spicy. Turning some customers away due to that decision. I am having a harder time finding something that I like.

This was my first visit and I will definitely be back! The prices are a little higher than other Mexican restaurants, but once you get your food you will understand why! The burritos are gigantic!

be real careful as to who you let be the greeter/seater, when we went he was a tad argumentative not only with us but another couple as to where we could be seated. Personally, I thought he looked like a deer in head lights if you preferred a different seat, like a booth instead of the half tables. And don't offer/ask what you want to drink if you have no intention of following up on the request.
