Time to celebrate, great place to do it!

We passed our driver license exams and we wanted to celebrate. I saw this mexican restaurant and figured it would do. But it was anything but ordinary, it was great, great music, great service, and great tasting food. My wife spilled my drink on me because she wanted to taste it and they... read more

My family, friends and me have been going there since they opened which was before I moved out of the area in 1998. They are always wonderful, not just the food but the staff! My sister has had many a party in their group room, everything from baby showers to kids birthdays. They are always so good to us. They... More

I had the Carnitas, my wife had the taco azada, and the kids had quesadilla and chicken strips with fries. The food was good, typical, not standing out in any real way, Mexican fare. The service was good. I would have no issue coming here again, but wouldn’t go out of my way.

My family had mixed reviews...I really loved my taco and cheese enchilada rice/bean combo plate. It was flavorful and tasty. The chips, salsa and guacamole was good. The burrito my husband had he thought was ok. My kids opted for the chicken strips, not great but they should have ordered Mexican food at the Mexican restaurant. The end of meal... More

A family lunch after a tough morning of cleaning up estate affairs. Other reviewers are right that it is not in a great location. Big margaritas, plenty of chips and a good salsa softened my ugly mood from the morning. I thought the Mexican food was toward the top of the average range, but did not strike me as special....

The food here isn't the same as it used to be. It's good, but not the best in town. The staff is very friendly and helpful, though! Family atmosphere and ok prices.

After reading some of these reviews we weren't sure if we should go here but decided to go anyway and glad we did. They started us off with the tortilla chips and they were hot and the salsa was great. I had a chicken burrito and it was very tasty. The service was excellent and if we want Mexican food... More
