Our Service

If you are unfamiliar with Mexican food please read our food descriptions. With your permission we suggest the special dinners.

Not for the price, but because they are prepared with authentic, yet mild flavor. For those who like it hot, we put a dish of hot sauce on the table.

It is absolutely correct to eat Tacos and Tortillas with your fingers.

Mexican food is good only when prepared and served hot. Please Allow us time to prepare your food right. We use only 100 percent vegetable oil.
