Not a bad stop if you're craving Tex-Mex favorites. Prices are fair, portions are hearty, and the food is pretty palatable.

Crunchy nachos, generously topped with chunky minced beef, melted Monterey Jack cheese, guacamole, sour cream, jalapeno peppers & spicy tomato salsa.

Supremely satisfying tacos _ crispy folded corn tortillas stuffed with chicken, shredded lettuce, cheese & tomato salsa.

Seafood enchiladas. The skin seemed a tad too thick, but that's a minor quibble.

Mexican paella. Not all that different from a Spanish recipe; equally yummy, really.

Deep-fried white tortillas stuffed with cream cheese & peaches. A meal here is certainly not for carb-watchers. The rest of us should have no complaints.

Sauza Gold & Jose Cuervo tequilas.
