This restaurant does some things very well. Their Friday fish fry is excellent. I'd also recommend their taco salad. You can easily feed a family of 5 for $60, and the food is better than Taco Bell, but don't expect super authentic food and music.

Decor was fine, service was good. The guacemole was freshly made and very good. Otherwise just average, chicken salad could have been bigger. Our son's tacos were fine for his taste. My wife had the tortilla soup, good chicken flavor, but otherwise a bit bland,...More

I guess they don't understand the meaning of authentic. The salsa should have been the first clue that the meal was going to be bad!!!! The only thing that was Mexican about our dinners was the refried beans and I'm sure that was out of...More

Bad service, Bad food, over priced and not authentic. Music is way to loud and not a friendly environment especially if you have kids. Screw up order everytime we've been there.

I love this place!!! there is seating in the main dining room, at the bar and in a meeting/ overflow area. The food is tasty and fresh. I get the same thing each time, even though I want to have a never eaten before adventure....More

Our chips were stale and the burritos flavorless. The place has changed hands a few times and things keep devolving. The bathrooms are scary. Not worth the stop, I'm afraid.

This was our first night and didn't want to eat around our hotel, the reviews were right...this restaurant was worth going to. The food is inexpensive, since we were not very hungry we shared a combo...chicken enchilada was very good, chalupa was good and a...More

Being from the south suburbs of Chicago, I think I have been exposed to some of the more authentic mexican/american food around. So, here is what I think: Margaritas tasted like yellowish/green coolaide with very little tequila. The salsa seemed to be pureed tomatoes with...More

whenever we come wine tasting, we make it a point to eat here. The service is always good and today was no exception. The portions are well sized and full of flavor. It's the next best thing to being in Mexico.

This is a great lunch or dinner destination. I would visit just for the free chips and salsa. Every meal I have gotten here has been quality and filling. Prices are average - $10 - $18.
