When our food finally came it was cold and very heavily salted! It was obvious to us that they lost or forgot our order. There was no apology or offer of compensation.

It's legit, the only place to get real Mexican food in Rockford. I could sit here and drink Margaritas and snack on chips & salsa all day. The food is pretty good. I usually opt for a burrito. The decor is fantastic. Make sure you stop by.

Had lunch here with a vendor. The service was good and the food great. They weren't too busy which I don't understand. I have always had great meals here, the restaurant is clean, and the service good. I love their chips and salsa as the chips are light.

Very disappointed in this place- food is good, sure. But my cognitively disabled son who has a fixed income carefully poured over the menu for a long time until finally settling on a chimichunga for around $10.00 that he could fit in his budget--pointed at it on the menu since neither he nor the server can communicate very well.
