About what you would expect

Not fast food, but far from Authentic, we did enjoy it so don't get me wrong....just level set your expectations. Service was very good and it is a clean, nice place to dine.

Maybe we came at a bad time, or the greeter was not having a good day. She bypassed us twice before I asked her. She said: you're next. And when I asked why two other couples had been seated before us even though they got there after us, all she could do was bat her eyes and say I'm sorry.... More

Gave this restaurant a try and was highly disappointed in the food. This place is not authentic by any means. The chips and salsa was good but that was it. If your looking for authentic Mexican try elsewhere.

Staff was really hurry all the time on Saturday evening and service wasn't good. We must wait long time to get an order and it's takes longer to get a food. I maybe praise the food if I say that it was ok. I didn't like this Mexican restaurant.

We were there for a group meeting. There were 35 of us - we were told that 20 had been expected. Our first problem: one waitress for all 35 of us [one waitress would not have been enough if there had been just twenty]. It took forever to get drinks, chips, etc., and our food orders taken. When the food... More

Stopped here for a late lunch. Service was good. Food was very good. Authentically decorated, took me right back to Mexico. I think the name changed, though!

Love the salsa and chips as we sat down since we had just been at the movies and we were starving. Drink were great too. Our waiter was fast taking our order and bringing the food. My hubby order the fajitas and it only had about 4 pieces of steak. Not the best but not the worst
