Great Fajitas!

Went there on Wed at 3.00 it was Fajitas Wed, which means you get a dinner size for lunch prices till 4.00. I split this meal(chicken) with my wife and it was large enough to feed both of us. It was delicious, perfectly cooked. The free nacho's and salsa was also very good. I am a salsa snob... read more

""Whats That""" Then the beer arrives with a Lame Lime.......... I did not ask for a Lime in my Beer. Do people all think that Mexican Beer should be served with... More

Sorry, I can't comment on the food, because the hostess was very rude and we left. We tried to ask a question when first seated, but she just walked off without even asking us if we needed anything or telling us who our wait staff would be. When we asked waitress if the buffet was still available at 2:05 hostess... More

Was greeted and seated promptly. Got a beer quickly and settled in to enjoy the atmosphere. The food came reasonably fast although I wasn't in a hurry. I had the hatch chili enchilada even though the server didn't know what a hatch chili was or how hot it was. It was typical Tex-mex, good but nothing outstanding. I would return.

I have ate here numerous times, always good. Reminds me a lot of Chi-chis, back in the day. Chips and salsa are extremely good. Food was extremely good with good atmosphere.

Went here before shopping at Great Lakes Crossings. Friendly service was good, fast, no complaints there. Complimentary chips & 2 types of salsa arrived. The brunch menu was interesting & they were able to accommodate gluten free diet without difficulty. My partner had a large breakfast burrito & I had the breakfast fajitas with chicken ( they were able to... More

We come to this place every time we go to the nearby outlet mall and we are finding the quality of food going downhill. Tonight I ordered Chicken Fajita Salad. There was not much variety of greens in it & the chicken strips were bland. Even the dressing, mango vinaigrette (?) couldn't salvage the meal as the dressing itself looked... More

I dine there every so often. Sometimes with a family member, sometimes with extended family ( large group of people with kids ). Service is always prompt. Waitstaff is efficient & professional, so it's not embarrassing to suggest this place to family/friends. I always have been able to relax there and enjoy my meal. For my taste, the food is... More
