If you like TexMex food you'll enjoy this place. Good food, good service and great margaritas. Prices are moderate.

We have eaten here a couple of times a month for the past year. The food is reasonably priced and usually pretty good. We ate there a week ago and had the worst service I had ever had.

Enjoyable Mexican food restaurant - the food was good and the menu selection varied enough to offer plenty of choices. Our waitress was the most outstanding part of our visit -- very friendly and personable.

We've eaten here four times in four years and one of the two of us has come home with digestive problems immediately after. The place isn't always clean either. There are so many good Mexican food places in town that we won't be back.

They were delivered with beef, the waitress said that's the way the kitchen does it, we pointed out the menu says chicken, and we don't eat beef, she stated she doesn't look at the menu. We had two new plates delivered with beef chili on top, pointed... More

Good Tex-Mex food with generous portions. The margaritas are strong. The fajitas are excellent and seasoned well.

In Nac, this is probably one of the worst mexican restaurants. The service is usually pretty terrible, its like night time in there and the food is bland with little flavor.
