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!

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!

Quick service even at peak lunch time, the salsa had lots of fresh cilantro. Menu was easy to navigate, had a very nice waiter. I will definitely return.

I eat at this place on a regular basis and believe you get an excellent value for the price. The menu is huge, portions generous, prices are fair. I've always had great service here. I often get my food to go and they do a very nice job of packaging it. You get a bag of their excellent chips with... More

I really loved the decor and atmosphere of this restaurant. The inside is painted bright pink, with lots of paintings on the walls and decorations hanging from the ceiling. We were seated in a booth alongside the wall. What was nice is that each booth is tucked in a small alcove, so you have a bit of privacy. The menu... More

The food was just OK. The menu had pretty much everything to please our family. The service was a little slow but the server was nice. We had to wait and wait for the check and finally I just went to the counter to pay as the check never arrived. Prices were pretty good. Portions were average size.
