Yummy fresh Mexican good in a cool setting. It was cold when we were there so the cosy size was welcome. We booked ahead so we could get the big table, there were 8 of us.

Off the beaten path but a pleasant surprise. Rather small but cozy. The staff was most helpful and courteous. We had the chicken and jalapeno quesadillas. Yummy
