The food was delicious and served quickly. The large Margarita was tasty and full of tequila. Finally a margarita with a kick! Our server was very pleasant and attentive. We will go back next time we are in Escondido.

We really enjoyed dinner here. The house Margaritas were excellent size, taste, and did not skimp on the Tequila. The food was delicious and the service was excellent!

We walked in and were greeted with terrible looking tables and chairs. Booths looked worn out also. Food taste was below average. Drinks weren't good. We won't go back.

Love the food here. Good prices and delicious lunch buffet. I also enjoy there chili relleno. My wife always orders their Half Super Tostado which is a meal in itself. Highly recommended for all occasions.
