While dining alone, I decided to try it out. I ordered the carnitas plate for dinner. I found that it was a bit too salty for my liking. It wasn't the best Mexican food I have had, but it wasn't the worst either.

We are regulars to this restaurant. We usually have a great time here. Yet today the food was just BAD... though our waitress was great. I don't know if there is a new cook or if things have went bad in the kitchen, but I am not happy with this experience.

My suspicions are that the food like tacquitos and chimmichangas are frozen and fried. For that kind of food it is expensive.

This place used to be really good but last time I went food was cold. Took forever to get an it was empty. Won't be going back there's a lot of other Mexican food restaurants in town that are better.

This restaurant used to be our families favorite, but as time has gone on, the quality had gone down. The service is always good!

Service was good, food was average for a Mexican restaurant, prices average, overall a decent restaurant but not something special.. They do have a full bar which is a plus for me. Would return.

I found the food to be average. The biggest distraction is the "ambience" of the place. It's a large room and sound almost echoes around. The bar area is much better in appearance than the main restaurant.
