This is a locally owned Mexican restaurant that has been in business over 40 years. The layout feels like the building might have once been a house that was converted to a restaurant with a bar to the right and the dining area to the left of the front entry way on the side of the building. They also have outside seating on the deck when the weather is nice.
They serve complimentary chips and have the option of mild or hot house-made salsa and is the only Mexican restaurant that I know of that offers a soup with their dinners combo. The Black Bean soup is like a vegetarian chili and the flavor is so full a carnivore would not miss the meat. It is served with tortilla crunchies and a dollop of sour cream on top.
The presentation for their chimichanga’s is above average, with the guacamole and/or sour cream being piped on the side on top of the Pico De Gallo, but the meat inside is mild for Mexican dishes.
The only thing I don’t like about the bar area is dark and the tables are very close together in that area. Guess it would be good if you were going out with a group as everyone would be close to each other or for a date as the darkness help hides your flaws.
The other is that although the staff is friendly and service prompt, they need to be more knowledgeable about what is in the dishes. how prepared and what comes with the different combos. On our last visit, we were charged for the soups although they were part of the dinner, although it was fixed promptly when brought to their attention.
