GREAT Margs...! (but pricey)

We just went last Weds., for the 11 dollar fajita night! Love it - the two of us ate for less than 16 dollars! They have many good specials throughout the week. I am always looking for the "deal" dinner, so generally, I wouldn't go unless it was a deal night! Kinda pricey..

I was extremely disappointed in this restaurant. My husband and I have been driving pass this place for a couple of months and decided to try it for lunch on a Saturday. I was extremely disappointed. The restaurant atmosphere is set up like a bar/warehouse. It was loud and kind of run down. The server was not very welcoming. We... More

I was hoping that all the people who had been giving this place good reviews were right and the few that were giving it poor reviews were wrong. Well the poor reviews were right. Forty three years living in Colorado and a lot of Mexican restaurants and this ranks right down there with bottom two or three. After being seated... More

Wife and I from out of state went here with our daughter and husband who are locals which like the food here. The venue is dreary dark and unappealing. I had to use an iPhone light to read the menu. Maybe we were seated in an unusually dark place. But the dark dark red walls and black industrial ceiling didnt... More

It's not my favorite Mexican food restaurant but definitely my top choice in the area. My favorite is the crispy chile rellenos. Their dip is a decent garlicky salsa with nice heat, but it's been a bland miss a few times. Ordering from the bar is expensive but either the bartender likes me or they make em strong there anyway,... More

My family and I have eaten here about a dozen times and we've always had a good meal, worth the trip. Sit on the patio if during the Summer -

Don't know how some 'Reviewers' gave this place 4 & 5 Stars on the food...? Typical SHOPPING CENTER, Restaurant. Painted Concrete floors. Open to the roof. The NOISE just bounces around. Background noise makes it hard to carry on a conversation. And it just gets louder as more people come in. Don't know why I ordered Tamale's. In the Denver... More

Just visiting the area. The best thing about it was that it was filling. The worse thing is that the food lacked flavor. They need a mild sauce in my opinion. The service was alright. The average vote in our group of four to rate this restaurant was a 3. I'd give this one a miss next time because it... More

We've wanted to try this place for years, but never actually end up there for some reason. Not sure why now that we have. Went on a Friday night. It was busy, but didn't have to wait. Server was friendly and did a great job with keeping our water filled and making sure we didn't need anything else. It was... More

Just found time to try this place out for the first time. I will be moving to the area and we may be back often after this visit. To start off the salsa was spicy and I really liked it. I had the smothered burrito as I usually do so I can try the green chili. I really liked the... More
