Good dinner with Friends

We had a nice dinner with friends. Food is a little heavy but tasty. I wish they had more sauces and reduced the oil used to fry tortillas and beans.

This place makes a good first impression. The exterior is attractive and we were greeted and seated promptly. The interior decor is a little plain, but the server arrived promptly to take our drink order and we were provided with free chips and salsa to munch on. We began with the guacamole appetizer, which was good, but should have been... More

Good food and decent prices. For being a large chain that tries to appeal to everyone, the food is mostly "authentic."

They had many vegetarian choices on their menu. If you are a vegetarian, the spinach or avocado enchiladas with green sauce was delicious! They served 3 kinds of sauces with the chips and all were good. Their cilantro rice served as a side was also very tasty. Highly recommend it.

We stopped in just for appetizers and a drink. I love a good margarita and was not disappointed. They serve three great salsas and chips, a mild, a spicy and a mango tomatillo that was amazing. We ordered the firecracker shrimp and cheese dip one day and came back for the firecracker shrimp and a quesadilla another day. I will... More
