Michael from Spring Hill Tennessee says :
I go to this place EVERY TIME I find myself in the area. Every single item I've had is excellent. My go-to favorite being the carnitas in salsa verde. The authentic Mexican selections are amazing but they've also got anything you'd typically want to find at a Mexican place - tacos, burritos, nachos. Their salsa and chips are perfection. Cheese dip - the best I've had. Service is always friendly and fast. The interior is cozy and clean - nothing too fancy. The pricing is great especially considering the quality you get. It's a several steps better than any other mexican place you'll find.
I hate to be blunt but, the place is cheapest and most friendliest Mexican joint here in town in my eyes. Having a family working in a restaurant brings the love and perfection to food like no ones business.
