Right from the start, the chips and salsa were very good. I ordered the Chicken Fajitas and my husband ordered the Big Burrito. We were both very happy and will definitely be back the next time we are in town.

Most of the problem was service. Very pushy, hurry up, your six people are not drinking so eat and leave. Now they are moving to GT mall. Don’t think we will be back.

Food was average & over priced. They charged for hotter sauce. Mexican soft drinks were $2.60 a piece. Nothing seemed fresh. Leftover from the weekend. Will not go back. The waiter practically pushed us out the door, not a good place.

Not in the downtown area but not too far away. This is one of the best Mexican restaurants we have eaten at. Food is excellent as well as service and prices!

My husband suggested this restaurant (as he’s been before on business). We went on a Saturday night and were seated right away. The salsa and chips were one of the best I’ve ever had! The chips were still warm. My husband loves their taco salad...More
