We enjoy coming to our local, authentic Mexican restaurant. The wait staff is great; the food and drinks are very good. We've enjoyed all of the dishes we have tried. The Shrimp Cocktails are huge! The margaritas keep flowing! The complimentary chips and salsa is served warm (the chips) and the salsa is always fresh. The Mariachi band was fun... More

Cannot comment on the dine-in experience but have ordered food to go twice and both times the food left much to be desired... I live up the street and they offer food to be ready in 5 minutes- red flag #1. I thought maybe with all the positive reviews it was just a slow night but the second time I... More

They have the finest Mexican food in the area, evident by the crowds and the growth of the restaurant. I've never had a bad meal. The staff is very attentive and friendly. Beer is available.

We have friends in the area and always eat here when we meet. They have good food and decent size portions etc. The chips and Salsa are very good. Nice friendly and prompt service is always a plus. They offer enough different dishes and sides to please everyone.

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 restaurant.... 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!!
