Good Mexican

A big group of us went there for dinner and if there is one thing I can say is the staff were great, good service and nothing a problem. I ordered the chorizo enchiladas and it had great flavour (I love chorizo), rice was good but... read more

Unfortunately the food we had was dry and tasteless I don't know if it was just what we ordered but I'm pretty sure fajitas should be nailed in the kitchen by now. You pretty much get what you pay for its cheap but it reflects in the food. So my advice is have a few beers first and maybe the... More

The atmosphere was quite cute here and the staff were friendly. The margaritas (original one) was really yummy. Even so, the actual food was very run of the mill, bland and boring. If you want quick and sizeable that is bland you have come to the right place. The refried beans were like paste. Would not eat here again.
