Stopped in to quiet the long overdue craving for Mexican food, and we weren't disappointed. The service was great, the food delicious and the prices affordable. Washed it down with a Mango Margarita! Yum! Tamales, enchiladas, and chimichangas!

Went here based on Trip Advisor and hotel recommendations and we were not disappointed. Great Mexican food, large portions. Don't order the special Mango Martini as it is way too salty.

We love this restaurant! The margaritas are great - kick butt variety. Food is plentiful and very good. For a couple of Texans, this is as close as it gets to good Mexican cooking. We were bummed out when we saw their other location closed...More

This was their new location just off I-80. So new that they didn't have a liquor license so NO margaritas! The server had trouble getting our order straight, chips were a little greasy, salsa average at best. It was a good try, anyway.
