Nice family dinner. East to get in most times and decent food. Seafood dinners are better than expected. Only error made was ordering what I thought was a small dish of queso on the side for my enchiladas but they brought a regular size queso...More

My family decided to have a birthday dinner here and it was "okay". The servers were everywhere and there was no proper organization. They made up for it with delicious food. We almost everything from salad to their house entrees. The hostesses had great energy!

This place has quite a wide menu of Mexican and Tex-Mex food, including enchiladas, fajitas and tacos. The quality of the food is very good, and the service friendly. The restaurant itself is quite large, but not terribly cozy, and is located in an open...More

These guys are always friendly and ready to bring on the delicious food! Fajitas here are the best! The salsa is my favorite also. Frozen margarita with salt, and you can't find a more satisfying Tex Mex meal IMHO! So glad Escalante's is in the...More

My sister recommended this restaurant and that she liked the Beef Empanaditas. Not being a big eater I didn't think I could handle three. They let me order two off the appetizer menu. Then, my favorite, Guacamole, was made at my table with only the...More

This is not type of a restaurant you will drive across the town to dine there, but if you happen to be in the neighborhood it is a very decent Tex-Mex restaurant with good food and prompt, attentive service. Their Margaritas and Sangrias are strong,...More

My taco salad was the most bland I've ever had. So tasteless that I didn't eat it and the server graciously removed it from our check. Husband had a combo lunch of an enchilada, an empanada, shrimp kisses, refried beans and rice. He ate it...More
