Great atmosphere and service

It's been a few years since I was at this restaurant. Two of is set at the bar The servers very professional and greedily. We had some appetizers and cocktails. The food was very good. The atmosphere in this place reminds me of a traditional Latin American restaurant.

This place has the best tex mex food ever. I have been here over 100 times and get the chicken and beef burritos all the time. Great drinks and super fast service. No dessert as they like to turn the tables fast.

I've been here several times on my travels, I don't think I've seen a tex mex place so large, which is handy as they can accommodate larger parties, although don't count on that because despite its size it is very popular - which I think is not only down to the food but also that there is nothing else really...

Have eaten there many times. The food, a big selection and wait staff are wonderful. It can be a little noisy and is always a full house Wonderful crispy crushy fresh tortillo chips and dip

Every time we ride by here the place is always packed so, we figured it must be good. We went for lunch and it was fantastic. We were there at 11:30 when it opened and there was a line waiting. Within 20 minutes the place was half full and by time we left it was full. My wife had blackened... More

Went here with a group. Good Mexican pub atmosphere. This place can get packed on a weekend night. We had a group of 12 and it took about an hour to get a table, well two tables actually that were close to each other, they don't have tables big enough for 12. The food all looked good and the drinks... More

We went to this place as a last minute choice for dinner. What a great choice we made. The food was amazing. Just be aware if you have small children, because the music was extremely aloud. My children were ok, but some may not be. Also they do not have a dessert menu if that's something you like to eat... More
