First and last experience with this restaurant. Finally seated next to the open kitchen and front door and flickering light. Five different servers? Worst warm syrupy Appletini. We sent it back. Cold hard chips and uneventful salsa. Chicken taco salad was gooey and cold. Warm...More

Exceptional Mexican restaurant in shopping mall area. We stopped for lunch after shopping one afternoon. Happy hour is most of the day with an extensive drink menu. There are lunch specials portioned just right. We ordered chicken quesadilla and chimichanga. Each came with beans and...More

Food and service are usually good, however tonight the food was sub par and the service was also sub par. Asked for hot sauce as bottle was empty and never received it. Queso was skimmed over and cold on the enchiladas. Server was inattentive.
