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

We stopped at the bar for a bite to eat before a concert at DTE. Corona's were great and the guacamole was really good, but the tortilla soup was cold and not all that tasty. Otherwise, we have a fine experience.

We stumbled on this place when visiting Great Lakes Crossing. Food was tasty - spicy and hot. Very reasonably priced and excellent service. The free nachos and salsa were a nice addition to them meal. Their salsa is hotter than one would normally expect in a restaurant from my experience.

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
