I have eaten here multiple times and have always enjoyed my meal. The salsa is freshly made as is the guac. Their choices are all flavorful and alert you if the dish is spicy. Service is great!

We went for dinner on a Thursday. The portions are large and everything was delicious. Thursday night Margaritas are in special for $2.99 and they're huge. I highly recommend it, especially on a Thursday.

Average Mexican food. Steak was a little chewy and not as flavorful as I have experienced at other places. but, service was fast and friendly. Drinks never empty and prices average for Mexican.

Ordered some take out from lunch menu and got plenty of good chow at a very reasonable price. Picked it up 20 min after I ordered and did not have to ask for anything extra. Plenty of chips and salsa.

My wife and I stopped by one weekday night. The restaurant wasn't crowded but it took 15 minutes before anyone noticed us. Everything took forever; getting a menu, getting our drinks, getting the food, getting the check, and getting the final bill. And for what?...More
