Food better Sevice slow

Went for dinner with the girls. As we sat down the hostess brought us chips and salsa unfortunately the waiter took 10 min to come by and take our drink order. It then took him another 5 minutes to bring the drinks. We started with the chicken timba empanadas which were good. My daughter had the... read more

Been there several times- never crowded. Good Mexican food, reasonable prices and great drinks. Their Fish Tacos are particularly good.

Taco orders were cold. Returned to be heated. When returned the food was tasteless and what flavor there was, was miserable. The tacos were tasteless and the fish pieces tasted as though they came out of a freezer...like rubber. I have eaten in many restaurants in the Miami-Dade area and this one ranks at the bottom. I will never eat... More

Went with my girls after my daughters basketball game. We had the combo platter and empanadas and my little one had the kids meal cheese quesadilla with fries. My daughter asked for a soda with her kids meal and it took the server 15 minutes to bring her drink even after reminding him 3 times. When we asked for the... More

Well we gave in and went to another one of those questionable restaurants. You know the big nation wide chains that think they serve good food. Here is the truth. We walk in ask to sit outside. Clearly there are about 4 tables occupied. 2 people at each table. Not many people in the restaurants. They told us we had... More

This restaurant food is great! The fajitas are the best! The tortillas are made fresh daily and the time of driving! The margaritas are outstanding and the flavored ones are awesome! The desserts are a favorite with the kids! The staff is friendly and attentive!

The Happy hour drinks are a good deal~ The service is slow, food just fair, I ordered a taco salad and the plate was cold as if it was refrigerated, already made.

The food was just OK, nothing to exciting. The place did smell somewhat sour. The one thing I did notice is that one of the waitresses (not ours) kept playing with her curly hair. It was long a should have been pulled back in my opinion. One minute she would run her fingers through it, the next it was plopped... More

The food was average but Margaritas were the best. I had visited many times and felt the same way each time I go there. The staffs are not that friendly.
