Reviewed 18 August 2018

We have eaten many times here and food and service were outstanding. We stopped for dinner around 5:30 PM on Tuesday 14 August 2018. The service staff was excellent as usual and we ordered our favorite items. My wife ordered the Pollo Azteca $10.50 Grilled chicken breast topped with spinach, cheese sauce and served with rice, refried beans & guacamole salad. The Chicken breast was substituted with 2 slices of chicken lunchmeat that was way overcooked (burnt on the edges). I ordered from the combinations menu my fav's Chile Poblano, Tamal, Burrito with red sauce and a taco.The taco was good. The tamal was a chicken tamal which I usually like, but this one had a sauce in it that was so spicy hot that I left it on the plate along with most of the Chile Poblano which was normally a mild chile like a hatch chile, this one was a firecracker. The Burrito was ok. All in all a very disappointing meal.We have lots of company coming, we had planned on several visits here...It's a shame that this once very fine Mexican Restaurant has gone "Tex-Mex", and thinks everything has to be ultra spicy hot. No excuse for the chicken lunchmeat instead of a chicken breast....Sadly, we will take our company elsewhere...

What a a great ambiance! It has been completely restored and looks beautiful. The entrees were again very good. The prices are very reasonable. The salsa bar is large. There is also a large bar. You won't be disappointed!

Stopped in because of its location & convenience to where we were going. We were pleasantly impressed with the food & service. Check out the salsa bar. Get the churros for desert - puts all other churros to shame. Will definitely stop here again. (See photo for churro aftermath.)

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in the areA. They have great food, a perfect atmosphere, courteous and attentive staff, and great decor. This is the perfect spot for great, authentic Mexican food. I tried the combo plate with a taco, an enchilada, a Chile poblanos, and the beans and rice. It was all wonderful. My wife always raves about the fish tacos but wishes they offered two instead of three. Meals are very filling for sure.
