While in the Dallas area for a week, I ate here twice because it was that good. First, the salsa is the best I have ever had. It didn't look like any salsa I have ever had and certainly didn't taste like any other. It looked like the salsa was slightly pureed, but there were plenty pepper chunks. The salsa... More

Met a friend for dinner who has been here many times. She loves the Carne Asada and Margaritas - which, again, she said was wonderful. I ordered the Pesto Shrimp enchiladas and they were excellent! Serving portions were plenty and my enchiladas were stuffed with flavorful shrimp. My only complaint was my wine was lackluster and boring (there are plenty... More

They offer something different here that is not tex-mex. Their flavor's are tasty but not over the top in heat or greasy as some tex-mex can be. We've eaten here for quite some time and I was blown away by their carne asada today! The Pollo Maria is fantastic as well. Duck carnitas is very different on small corn tortillas... More

For years I have eaten at this restaurant every time I am in the area. Initially it was recommended by a hotel shuttle driver. I have never been disappointed with either a meal or the friendly, efficient service. The signature chicken dish is superb but my favorite are the duck tacos!

From the outside, the restaurant may not seem to appealing. However, this is one of those times you follow the "don't judge a book by its cover" phrase. I happened to eat here on an early weekend and was thoroughly surprised. I only had the tortilla soup and coffee; both items had robust, delicious flavor. Some of my friends shared... More

This restaurant is not too large, but there are plenty of tables and booths to go around. The menu has a large variety of Tex-Mex, seafood, and a pretty good kids' menu as well. There is a small bar in the back of the establishment with a small TV and an electronic Poker game. They have about 8 tables for... More

When we want some place simple but easy to get in and out. We like to go here. The food is great and the atmosphere is very pleasant. The margaritas are great

Flew into DFW. This place is less than 10 minute drive. Saw good reviews on Trip Advisor. Did not disappoint! Highly recommend. Lots of good choices on the menu.

As soon as you see the menu you know this isn't hit average Mexican restaurant. Duck, quail and salmon with a Mexican twist. I will be back........
