Haven't been there in a while but food and service are still good. Enjoyed taco soup and chicken fajita taco. Red sauce and green sauce both delicious. Their flour tortillas are freshly made in house and served while still warm.

If you are looking for quality TEX MEX, this is the place to go. Not loud, and great food. My coworker enjoyed a bean chalupa and I had soup and enchiladas. And of course FLAN. enjoy.

The food here is awesome. Some of the best Tex-Mex food around. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Never did we need to ask to have our glasses refilled. From enchiladas to tacos it is all good. Also, the homemade tortillas are wonderful.

We have gone here many times before, but this visit was very disappointing. The waiter recommended the Carnitas, so two of the seven of us went with that. The meat (pork tenderloin) was very dry and overcooked. Rice had an odd flavor, but charo beans were good. Meat in Tacos Al Carbon was also dry. Kids meals were ok, but... More

Very attentive servers, great food. We had the taco salad and the chicken combo. The taco salad was different from what I've seen at other places---the lettuce and tomato come in the taco bowl, and the chicken, guac, and amazing cheese sauce come on the side, which was nice as it was easier to mix everything together. The salsas that... More

Very average chain Mexican food. Staf5was courteous and attentive. Nothing special. Ok for quick meal. If looking for more local experience, try Herbert's or Garcia's.

The food here is good and the service was very good. Stopped with friends and everyone enjoyed their meals. We had a pitcher of Margaritas that were also very good.
