The food here is always good and very reasonably priced. Plus, the service is really fast. Good fresh salsa and if you ask they will bring the hot stuff. Great Margaritas and they actually put some tequila in them. Try the seafood options-really good.

I would give this 3.5 stars. Large portions, quick attentive service. Thought the bean dip that came with chips was good. We had a chicken with rice and mushrooms dish that was pretty good. I had a smothered burrito that was huge. Margaritas were ok....More

Went in for a family dinner. Love their food. My daughters and my favorite is the bean dip they offer with your complimentary chips and salsa. It's just that little something different. The food is always good and so is the service.

This place was a very pleasant surprise. Food was great. Definitely get the original margarita. It’s located off University Avenue and I-35.

The big surprise in this restaurant are the unique colorful bright Mexican carved chairs throughout. It gives you an instant smile and the anticipation for the great enchiladas is about to begin! Have a house margarita, too.

I actually found this place great. The bean dip was different but good. I had not seen this in the Mid West before. We also got a cheese sauce the second round of chips. The food was a large portion for the price and good....More

Delicious food, I enjoyed the salsa, the spicy salsa they bring in from the back is incredibly spicy and I recommend it. Prices are as assumed, and portion sizes are large.
