Spinach Enchilada

The spinach enchiladas the best enchiladas I've ever had in my life IM NOT JOKING. The sauce on top is something out of this world. Also, my mom is very picky when it comes to eating out and this has recently become her FAVORITE restaurant ever. The food is fresh and delicious, the ambiance is amazing. Even picking up my take out food during the COVID shut down is an enjoyable experience. Love love love this restaurant so much.

My wife and kids loved our Friday night to go order. The fish was so crunchy, fresh and delicious. The service was also top notch and they let me charge my phone while I waited

I heard about this salad from a customer ( I work across the street) and after I tried it I absolutely loved it. They used to all also have this salad with this corn side but I dont remember the name of it.
