This is a great place! The happy hour is superb, starting at 8:00 p.m. The house margarita is fantastic and the Steak Nachos or Fajitas are fabulous. Service is top notch! Highly recommend this place!

I've been here twice with family. The food quality isn't as great as the other locations I've been to. Each visit our food is just warm. Service is slow (even when restaurant is empty). Waiters and manager's customer service is poor and they try to...More

After having a craving for Mexican food while in Burnsville, I consulted Trip Advisor to see what the offerings were. I had read several reviews saying that since there was a fire, the quality had gone down hill. I didn't have that kind of experience....More

We used to eat here all the time before they had a fire. We tried it last night and were very disappointed. The service was very slow and had to ask another person for help. The food was not very good. They said that they...More
