Sorry to say that the steak fajitas were terrible! The steak was not good quality and the seasoning was terrible. Our waiter Angel was very good! The salsa was just ok!!

There were 13 of us for dinner. The servers went over and above to seat us all together and treat us wonderfully. The food was excellent. We went from appetizers to dessert and everything in between. All delicious.

This meal hit the spot and was everything we wanted after a long day of hiking. The fajita meal was large enough to share and was delicious.

I stand by my claim that this is the best Mexican food I have ever had. I got the chimichanga and it was amazing. Crowded restaurant but worth it. Love the javelina decor as well.

Got some recommendations about this place from our hotel so decided to give it a try. As another reviewer put it "disappointing". It just an average mexican food restaurant with pedestrian service. Off my list.

On a very hot day, we took a break from the heat for lunch indoors. The air conditioning, ice water and some fabulous food were our reward. I got the chicken fajitas; my wife, the Blackened Grilled Catfish Relleno. There was so much food that...More

I didn't order it but saw it served, looked like everything but the kitchen sink. I believe you can pick your protein either beef or chicken. It was piled high.
