    I've seen no mention of their homemade salsa and tortilla chips. Best salsa I've had at any Mexican restaurant, and I've been to a lot of Mexican restaurants and even to Mexico!

    Tortilla soup is UNRIVALED! Absolutely THE BEST Mexican restaurant in the area! BYOB, and be ready for a wait. Not open on Sundays, but totally worth your Saturday night. You'll be back. Read more

    They don't take reservations, but you can call ahead on the day of to put your name down for seating at certain times. Saves you from waiting in their very small entrance-way for an hour or more.

    Get whatever the specials are, at least one, and also get a salad. And get some fish or meat. Man I am about to go eat the leftover Frontera burrito right now.

    They have a yummy complimentary house salad that comes standard with entrees (or your choice of soup). Both are delish but the salad is different! Try it!

    So overrated. Have given this place so many tries and its always disappointing. Save your $ and time and go to El Pueblito just across the street for authentic Mexican.
