Fantastic margaritas and tacos. Nice fresh chips but salsa is just okay. The men in my life adore the huge burritos. Service is fast and friendly and the atmosphere is bright and cheerful. The guacamole is quite good. Well above average for tex-mex in the...More

Casual and low key setting, with many above average menu items and great service. The Margaritas, chips, and salsa are outstanding, and create a memorable experience when paired with their unique Habaniero sauce. Wonderful a la carte options, but the Chicken mole verde and the...More

We have been to this restaurant probably 50 times. Food is excellent, service great. Highly recommend the margaritas. Certainly more expensive than district taco, but worth it if you're looking for a sitdown experience.
