Pretty Good

We frequent here often. The food is pretty good, but nothing amazing. The food comes quick and cooked well. My only issues is that the tables are waaaay to close together. I feel stuffed in my booth!

The atmosphere is great since it is decorated nicely. The food is great also. Get a chicken quesadilla and rice. It is the best! Food was served fast too. It is located downtown and parking is usually easy to find. Definitely will come here again.

We frequently visit here for lunch and dinner and it's always consistently great food. Very hot, fresh, and tasty food, I would highly recommend this place.

We were in town and gave it a try....sub-par Mexican food. My enchilada was awful and the burrito sauce tasted strongly of cinnamon. They miss the mark. The taco was pathetic with a soggy shell and only a dab of ground beef and lots of lettuce, no flavor whatsoever. However, the staff there are amazing! Very friendly and great manners.

Chose this place as its the one our friends like to eat at and we were meeting them there. Nothing really stands out as fantastic. Was hoping it would wow us with taste, not so. Just average tasting. Portions for the pricing were okay. My husband and I like to share as he has a larger appetite than I. Service... More

The service was good at this restaurant. The dishes we ordered did not stand out as being unique dishes, but we enjoyed the meal.

Best Mexican in the area for sure have to go at least twice a month. Plenty of choices and they have a great cheese dip we like to order to go with the salsa and chips, to die for place.

We had great food, service, and atmosphere. Try the chicken verde enchiladas with guacamole salad. Enjoy a margarita. Stay away from the chains and eat at a local restaurant in the downtown area. There is also some nice outdoor seating on the sidewalk.

This is a great place to relax and have a great meal. The service is excellent. The menu is vast. The food is consistently tasty. The one review who said the service was slow is not a good judge of service when you have 18 people at one table. That sounds like Chaos to me. Give them a break!
