My wife and I went here with our daughter, her husband, and their two kids. Most of us had fajitas. The chips and salsa were good. The chicken fajitas were a bit bland. Not a lot of flavor. We've been going here for 15 years. The quality and service aren't what they used to be.

I'm not sure how this place can tout that they have "authentic" Mexican food. I ordered vegetarian enchiladas and they came filled with INSTANT mashed potatoes, topped with what appeared to be a ketchup-y sauce.

We went here for several years until several things happened. The food is tasty and the service is good, but the bathrooms, especially the men's bathroom became filthier every visit. They have a good enough business that they could afford to take care of this issue. We also started noticing that it was getting pretty pricey. We were charged more... More

I have been going there for years and have never been disappointed. Nice variety on the menu, and great margaritas. Nothing fancy, but a great value on authentic dishes.

It was our first visit and they did not disappoint. Not a spot for a romantic dinner, but if you want good food at a fair price this is the place. They have a bar although we did not partake that evening.
