We were seated quickly despite a full parking lot of vehicles. Service was good though our server seemed a bit distracted. He got back on track though.
Today at lunch I ordered the tres colores enchiladas, my son got the a crispy beef taco plate and my husband ordered beef fajitas. Fresh tortilla chips and salsa was brought to the table. The salsa gets hotter the more that you eat. Just the way I like it. For an up charge they will also bring out some white sauce. It is a garlicy sour cream dip. Kind of like Mexican aioli. Very tasty.
|Tres colores enchiladas|
My enchiladas were delicious; one cheese with green sauce, one beef with ranchero sauce and a white meat chicken enchilada with sour cream sauce. Served with cheese-covered refried beans, rice and a small lettuce and tomato salad on the plate. The beans were too salty today but everything else was enjoyable. Definitely plenty of food for me.
The taco plate only had two tacos. I would have expected three. My son really liked the beans (he likes salty). I'm hoping it was just an off day. The beans used to be one of the reasons I liked to eat there.
The food came out super fast. Most of it must be ready to go in the kitchen and only needs the final preparation. I'm sure we will make it one of our regular places, just not for fajitas. They are also known for their drink specials on weeknights. A good way to bring in business during the week is my guess.
There are many other options on the menu, so you don't have to eat Tex-Mex. They used to make a really good burger. Closed on Mondays.
