This food was more authentic Mexican than I had in Mexico. Margaritas are strong but yummy. Service was friendly and accommodating. Was an overall great experience.

Place looked interesting - kind of open-air, festive appeal. But the food - terrible. Chips and salsa were pretty ordinary. Ordered 3 enchilada dinner plate. When it arrived, all I could see was an ocean of melted cheese - and not good cheese. It was obviously Velveeta or some other processed cheese food. Somewhere under all of the cheese were... More

Horrible jealous service unfriendly and makes customers unwelcome, my advice is take your business elsewhere. Where you can enjoy your time and you don't feel like your talked about. I had my family and friends tell me to stay away, I didn't listen, I learned the hard way....DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!!!!!

The drinks were cheap and the food was sub-par. It took us 10 minutes to even place our drink order and what makes that so bad was there were only two people at the bar... The restaurant/bar didn't appear to be well kept either. I try to support the local restaurants or bars around where I live but I won't... More

The first impression of this place was that of a small run down old building with cramped tables and chairs too close to one another. The menus where covered plastic which where so dirty that you could hardly read the items listed. The entree's where at least 20-30% higher priced than the average Mexican restaurant and all sides where ala... More

Priced reasonably, the food is what you would expect from a Mexican restaurant in Michigan. Service and drinks are good. It can be extremely clostrophobic if busy. You are just about eating with your neighboring patrons.

They are one of the few places that still has individual nachos instead of stadium style. Cabbage soup is great. Very loud because it's so small.

Drive by go to Taco Bell. All of the meal was disgusting. Whe waitress used her bare hands to grab our chips out of a bus pan. Ever heard of gloves or tongs?

Came here as a large party and they didn't even have tables ready. Two of us couldn't even sit with the rest of our party and half of us are from out of town, so coming here kind of defeated the purpose. Took us 10 minutes to get seated, had to ask for water and stuff. 45 minutes in and... More

Monday and Tuesday Margaret are 2 bucks. Summer months the patio is open and more space is available as the main bar and dining room is small and cramped. Good place to hang out with the locals happy hour
