We come to this restaurant when we are in town visiting family. We used to enjoy the Happy Hour. Service has gotten so slow in the bar that we won't be coming back on our next visit. The last two times we were there our food order was wrong and it took forever to get the bartender's attention. The new... More

It's time for a new bartender. All of the renovations are not going to help business if you keep that guy behind the bar. He is slow and rude. We used to love happy hour at this restaurant. We rarely go anymore because of him. When we do, the food is good, but the service in the bar is terrible.... More

Really great food and service. We had a quesadilla which was huge and delicious, a combo meal and a burrito with wonderful tomatillo salsa. Loads of fresh chips with homemade salsa. We were really pleased with the quality and the price point of our meal. Great stuff!

Do not get turned off by the fact that the building is an old pancake house, or that the interior looks a little worn. The food is delicious and very reasonably priced. The service is friendly and prompt, but not rushed. Terrific for families given a very varied menu. Also good for small gatherings. Yet, my wife and I also... More

I visit this restaurant every couple of months. What a surprise to see the changes they have made. The inside is updated and has a much more relaxed traditional Mexican feel. Well done.

This has been my favorite spot for years and I've taken friends here several times. HOWEVER.... Something is going down hill. Stale chips - very slow service - cold food. I also noticed many new employees - what's up? What a shame. I love you guys!!!

This used to be a nice place for business people and adults to gather. They have had a bartender who has kept us away for quite a while until this week with his blaring rap music. We gave it one more shot and again, head banging rap music and a mostly empty bar. We must not be the only ones... More

This is one of the best Mexican places in Hartford county. I love how they do the guacamole right next to your table. The service and food is great and This is a great restaurant for families couples friends and everyone else.
