The waiter was attentive, the order was correct, drinks and food were received extremely quickly, and the food was fantastic. We were in town for a karate tournament and found this place on TA, and we'll definitely return next year. 6 people ate--and 3 had lunch margaritas--and the bill was less than $70. Highly recommended!

Honestly, why do Mexican restaurants in this area cook such bland, no spice food. Must be the clientele's preference. The Decor is original, prices are mid range, the service is adequate. The menu is the same-old same-old. Which proves there are clones with different names out there in the world. Not going back.

Monday night is $1 beer night, import or domestic. We had a group of 10 for our bike night. They easily accommodated us with no problem. Service was excellent food was great and moderately priced. I've been here several times before and they have always been consistent. I think they have the best Mexican food in the tri-cities.

Always great staff, good food and reasonable prices. Portions large enough to share, waiters polite and knowledgeable if you want to try something new.

This is a really great place to go have a bite to eat and enjoy the atmosphere. I went out with some friends and we had a great time. The menu is huge so if you can't find anything you like you must not like Mexican food.
