We had a large group and we'd called ahead. When we got there they couldn't seat is immediately, because of some other lingering large parties. We weren't really upset but nevertheless the staff was very apologetic. As soon as they were able to seat us...More

So it has a chain feel but it is done well. Always friendly service and good food. Chicken quesadilla is perfect. I love their salsa because it actually has a kick. Had a margarita too, which it tasted good but not a lot of alcohol...More

My wife and I went here for dinner. They do not cook anything here they simply apply heat. It is also overpriced for what it is. The fish taco's are on corn tortillas that were terrible, and the service was mediocre at best. The floors...More

Every day at 8 a.m., we start chopping veggies, soaking beans, and prepping our mesquite-fired grill. Not because we have to, but because we believe in delicious flavors made-to-order, from hand-rolled enchiladas to our sizzling fajitas to guacamole made right at your table. Everything pairs nicely with a grande margarita, and of course, enjoy the always endless chips and salsa.
