Fast eats

I say fast eats because you order and the food comes out pretty quick..I don't usually like mexican food so I eat something easy like a taco or a salad. The food is nice and warm when it comes out. So it's fresh. The chips and salsa are good. The staff are friendly. I have no problems with this... read more

My wife and I were seated immediately and asked by the hostess what we would like to drink. Within a few minutes our sodas came back with the waitress, ready to take our order. We ordered chicken tacos with rice and beans. The food tasted good and the service was excellent.

I've been a regular customer for years but have been coming less and less due to the jump in prices. When I called in an order the other morning, I arrived 15 minutes later to find it hadn't even been started although the restaurant was empty. Rather than apologize or admit any fault, I was just told it was coming... More

We have been going to this place for years. The last year or so the quality has been slipping. This time was bad. We ordered take out and they really skimped on everything, less than half of what we usually get. On top of this they over charged and short changed me. That's it no more!!

I called and said there has... More

Our server Elizabeth was attentive without being overbearing. We were in and out in 45 minutes but never felt rushed. The Chile Verde was excellent!

I will only order fajitas the rest is ok. Atmosphere could be better but then again its cherry valley. I was surprised it was nearly 50 bux for two of us and we don't drink alcohol...All we had was fajitas and guacamole. I may take the fajitas to go next time because it was warm in there.

Can't say anything bad about this place. This food has always been delicious, the service great and they have the best wine margaritas! I don't like most Mexican restaurants but this one is outstanding. Whenever I have visitors I take them there and I've never had to apologize for any bad food or service. I've been eating there for 8... More

I've been to all the Mexican restaurants in town and this one is easily my favorite. The food and service are both great. This last time I had the chicken enchiladas. The meat was nice and moist and the sauce was flavorful. Their chips and salsa are always great. We often buy their salsa for our own parties!
