we came here 17 years ago, and couldn't wait to come back, it was so good. Unfortunately, in that time it went from our favorite nationwide to one of the worst. It used to be the standard against which all others were judged. It is so bland, it would qualify as jail food. They admit this on their menu, but... More

We had their fajitas for two and it was plenty of food. They were delicious along with the margaritas. The service was excellent too. We will return.

We went for dinner on a Friday night and they were quite busy. However, we were able to get a table in the bar section without any wait. Because they were so busy and we were near the bar with a ball game on, it was very noisy. We were waited on promptly by a friendly waitress who was really... More

The food was good - great salsa. This is more "Americanized" Mexican food than "authentic" Mexican food, but it was good. The bar staff (we sat at the bar to avoid some of the long wait) was friendly and efficient.

Delicious food, reasonable prices. I ordered the combo plate with Chile relleno and beef enchilada my husband ordered the Special mahi mahi tacos everything was very good. The atmosphere was very inviting the outdoor seating looked great but too cold to sit there would definitely come again!

Margarita's at half price with attentive bar staff made a great happy hour but the restaurant food and service were average at best. Quantities were large but menu uninspired… Taco bell at higher prices.
