The food is amazing. Everything I have ever ordered has been delicious. The margaritas are also very good. It is a family owned business, so everything is prepared with pride. The tortillas are prepared fresh right in the middle of the restaurant. It gets crowded on the weekends. There is a live band on Friday and Saturdays nights. Great place... More

This was a recommendation for us so we tried it. The food was ample but spicy. The margarita was the worst I ever had. They had a live music but disco music in a Mexican restaurant seemed a bit odd to me. Prices were a bit high. The restaurant was crowded and tables were very close to one another.

This place is very close to our sisters house, and she recommended it. We were very pleasantly surprised, although it was jam packed , We got seated pretty quickly, the service was... More

The service is excellent and the food is delicious. It is a great combination of bar and restaurant. Arturo's margarita is the best margarita in town. Maria's tortillas, the poblano corn soup, and the fajitas bear special mention. Do not miss this dining experience.

The food here is always excellent. The shishkabob was tremendous and unexpected at a Mexican restaurant. On weekends they have live music and a dance floor that can be lots of fun!

We visited this restaurant during brunch. They had a buffet that was really good with many options to choose from including breakfast dishes. The top shelf margarita was fantastic as well as the salsa. It was really fresh and tasty. Service was awesome.
