Basic good quality Mexican food, good but not overly fancy. The best feature in this place is the staff - every single staff person makes you feel welcome and they are happy you are there. The prices are very reasonable. Great place for lunch or dinner, friends, family or couples. If you want to be able to have a conversation,... More

When we walked in, we were greeted immediately by a lovely lady with a beautiful smile. Three different people helped to serve us and each one was smiling and very friendly. They were very attentive without being annoyingly attentive. We had an option of eating the buffet or from the menu. We saw other people with plates from the buffet... More

They have Sunday brunch and we went for Mothers Day. All the Mexican cuisine plus an omelet maker and waffle maker and fresh fruit bar! We enjoyed it as the staff is also A+. Recommend for an inexpensive fun brunch!

We were there last night for first time, with my husband and son. Service was fast, efficient and friendly. We each ordered different dishes, they were all superb, hot, plated nicely. We will return, only negative, a long drive for us

This one doesn't happen to be terrible. The food I've had here on my different visits has almost always been acceptable, or more so. The wait staff is friendly, and the service is quick and clean.

We've been going to this restaurant for years, but I am just now adding it to my reviews. One of the things I like over other Mexican restaurants I've been to recently is that the complimentary chips you start out with come with not only salsa for dipping, but also a refried bean dip which I love. I have a... More

have been visiting this establishment at least once a month for around 8 -10 years now and still have the best food and service - tried Pepitos last night and wow Tapatio has it beat all to heck ---even better than El Hacendia on Canyon Road. We really do enjoy this place and that is why we keep coming back... More

My family enjoys coming here when we're in need of a Mexican meal. The food's always warm, flavorful, and filling, with very spacious booths. We've never had a bad experience here, and are quick to recommend it to local friends, as well as taking our out of town friends there, should the mood strike us.
