A pleasant meal. Not to big a serving, meant we could order a dessert. food and service is very good. Not to hot for people who don't like hot spicy food

Not open at present but apparently they are planning to rebuild soon. Good food but service not always good. You feel rushed so they can get more bums on seats

After trying some of the other Mexican eateries around town this is pretty good in comparison with a pretty good atmosphere to go with it. Really nice tasteful food.

This is a standard chain texmex place, but not cheap. The food would have been a bit exotic 10 years ago. Not the place to go if you're looking for a quick cheap Mexican, or a more nuanced view on Mexican food.

We stumbled upon this place when looking for a place to eat for dinner. It was very busy and not many vacancies. Staff were great, friendly and knew their menu. there was plenty of delicious food. we just wish we had a doggy bag to take what we couldn't eat home with us.

Yum, yum, yum! The food here is delicious & the atmosphere is always humming. We've been to this restaurant several times and will go again. Service is always good - no matter how busy the place seems to be (& it's always busy). Menu is vast & food is excellent (as are the margarita's!!)
