We had dinner here. The margaritas were terrific. They had a Texas Guacamole which we tried. It is chopped instead of mixed up. It was good but not really something we would get again. The food was typical but very good. The service was good and the place was interesting.

Had the chicken fajitas and cheese dip. Good but nothing outstanding. Water here is nasty. Tastes like mold but it tasted that way elsewhere in town so I think it's just the water supply here.

After reading all the good reviews was terribly disappointed. The waiter seemed to be in a hurry and kept coming to the table, felt like we were being rushed. We were there about 2:30pm, there was only one other table seated. Not needing the table. Also ordered an happy hour special and was told that the specials had recently changed... More

Takeout because we were tired after traveling all day. The restaurant was crowded w/ a brief waiting time. Doing a booming takeout business. The fresh guacamole was absolutely delicious. We enjoyed the cheese enchilada & crispy chicken taco with rice and beans Ala carte chili relleno stuffed w/ ground beef & baked w/ lots of cheese was almost as good... More

I was very impressed tonight! The restaurant was at maximum capacity but the servers worked together to assist each and every customer. We received our food after just a few minutes of ordering and she kept our drinks refilled.

This is a longtime family favorite. They have all the Tex-Mex classics and some excellent specialties. They have an extremely tasty variation on the chili relleno: small pepper stuffed with ground beef and baked in lots of cheese sauce. Also, the stuffed peppers are amazing.

Thank Lisa H
