I've eaten here a lot of times. I plan on eating here a bunch more. I've never had a bad meal or experience. Clean great food and a very good staff. If you like Tex Mex this is for you.

Nothing very special here. Standard fare with the usual enchilada combinations, chimichangas, burritos, tacos, etc. For seafood, there are shrimp, squid and tilapia served various ways. The plates are FULL and probably bigger than most other competitors. Bring TUMS. There is a full bar and the margaritas are available in three sizes. The medium ($10.75) is probably twelve ounces over... More

My husband and I have eaten here 2x this month. Dinner was very good. The salsa is not good at all and the tortilla chips are only ok. I requested Pico de Gallo which was never brought. On Sunday we went for lunch as the website showed DAILY lunch specials after looking at menu more than 5 minutes we were... More

I think they're living on last year's reputation. We were seated right away. Our waitress had a hard time answering our questions. She did not tell us that pico was extra charge on fajitas ($3.98) Extra charge for cheese (that was supposed to be on the plate.) One of the three meals came 5 minutes late. It was the wrong...

My Husband and I went there for dinner and the service was decent. A lady came to our table and was making guacamole dip before asking us if we wanted it. It costs 7.00 plus tip for this tableside service. Service was so quick we didn't see our server after he served us our food. It was way too spicy... More

If you like Mexican food, then you need to check this place out. I've been to Mexican restaurants in many states, and this is one of the best. Their burrito's are huge and come in many variations. I'm not a big fan of guacamole, but a friend got the table side guacamole and I liked it so much, I got... More

My wife had the fish tacos which she thoroughly enjoyed. The serving was very generous and the grilled fish were very tasty. I had the lunch beef fajitas which were also very good. They provide a nice serving of salsa and chips before the meal and will refill if you would like. We will return again soon.

The ambiance is very nice and authentic Mexican. The tableside guacamole was delicious as well as the chips and salsa. The margaritas were okay but maybe a little sweet for my taste. The service was exceptional. The beef fajitas were made with very high quality beef and seasoned well. This was some of the best Mexican I have had in... More
