By far The Best Mexican food I have had in Memphis! Went here on a whim and we were pleasantly surprised. We got the small top shelf pitcher in mango flavor which was strong and tasted great. We also got the California burrito and shrimp...More

After this place made a local list, we decided to check it out for lunch. The portions and prices are fine, but any way you slice it, this is an average tex mex chain and not authentic or even good Mexican cuisine. Ok for cheap...More

I have had pleasant experiences at this location as well as visits where little went right. There seems to be high turnover of staff, which is a large part of the problem. The wait staff can be either excellent, or completely and totally, 100%, clueless....More

We arrived as soon as they opened and got a very sweet server. The cheese dip was yummy but a basic enchilada and taco were very bland. It was as if the meat had zero seasoning at all. I had been here once before and...More

Food here is consistently good. They have a typical menu and service is always friendly. To be honest I think the downtown location has more flavor, but if you're in the area and craving Mexican, this is a good place to stop.
