Stopped here for tacos for lunch - only go if you’re hungry! Although they do offer a box if you can’t finish. Good selection, tasty and fresh. Nachos and salsa are delicious. One of our party wasn’t keen on Mexican and chose a grilled chicken...More

I do love their chips and salsa!! Pretty delicious. And you can even order a spicier version of salsa if you prefer. Their margaritas are huge, I usually order a skinny margarita because the sweet & sour they use in their regular is a little...More

Very nice and accommodating staff. The margaritas are good and the chips and salsa were great. The food was plentiful and although not the best Mexican I've ever had it was a good value and the location was wonderful

There were plenty empty tables but it took 20 minutes to get seated, 15 minutes to get a drink order, so we went ahead and placed a food order to hopefully expedite the process. 30 minute wait for tacos and nachos. Portions are big and...More

We sat outside and enjoyed the view and cool breeze. There was no wait to be seated and our service was acceptable but not outstanding. It took 10 minutes for our order to be taken but after that it was timely. The portions were large...More

There is parking right in front of the restaurant if you are lucky enough to find one. If not then you continue down the road one block turn right and there will be public parking that Fred's will validate for.
