The food was just amazing. They have so many option. I had a beef Fajita. It was delicious. Try the queso with chips. Very nice staff very friendly. If are close to the palace or the Great Lakes crossings that's the place to go.

I had the chicken enchiladas with the sour cream sauce and they were the best. Then I had the sizzling apple crisp desert and it's definitely the best I've ever had.

Arrived on a Friday night around 8pm. Walked In no one was waiting. The two girls at the hostess desk kind of glanced our way but just continued to talk. I said "I guess we'll just go to the bar since they don't have a hostess" they glanced at us and continued their conversation. Once we seated ourselves at the... More

We have been here several times. Food is reasonably priced and very good. Love the queso dip!! Can get drinks if you want. It's colorful and nice atmosphere. The staff has always been very friendly with the exception of this last time we went. The hostess seemed to be a bit irritated because we asked for a larger booth but... 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.

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, we make... More
