This is a large noisy Mexican restaurant. We ordered guacamole and it was prepared by a trainee. The added ingredients are not cut up small enough and interferes with the avocado. It was too chunky and not smooth. Our main course was the fish tacos...More

Came here on a Wednesday evening - all the food was good - service was good too. Portions are pretty big. Steak fajitas was a big hit.

I really like this place, the guacamole is delicious , the chips are home made , the drinks close to perfection. The valet parking is ridiculous ..... they have the parking spot , but they force you to valet. That's why 4 instead of 5

Food was great and place is big with plenty of tables if you want a large get together or just a few of you do a quiet meal. Service very good and they make there very own tortilla so very authentic. Recommend this place

We have eaten here a few times. Their complimentary chips and salsa are quite good - the chips are the thinnest I have ever had. I was disappointed this time with the fish tacos. The fish was breaded and over cooked - and not to...More

Terrible waitstaff experience. Waiter was unfriendly and forgot our drinks right away. Half of our food came out ice cold so we politely sent it back, which prompted the manager to come out and apologize and promise to take it off our bill. When the...More

I would not have picked this restaurant for myself as one really needs a car to get there. I was invited to accompany friends for a small celebration and I was glad I decided to join in. The drinks are generous, top quality and a...More
