From the outside this little Mexican Restaurant doesn't look too inviting. On entering it, fairly basic decor and sitting. We ordered our food Chicken Fatitas, I ordered a Margarita which was served in a hugh glass and that was the medium size!! They brought complimentary nachos and salsa. Very nice Our food came and looked well presented and wow, probably... More

If I could sum up my Lunch Buffet experience it would be "I never want to leave here" I was shocked to see some of the more recent reviews of this eatery. I was craving some Mexican, and this restaurant was on my way so I stopped. The first thing I noticed was the HUGE well-stocked lunch buffet, so I... More

Got an attitude when I asked if it would be possible if we could. We should of left at this point. We went... More

First of all, the service was terrible. The young girl was extremely rude and when we asked if there would be more food added to the buffet, she said it was almost over and no there wouldn't be (it was 2 pm, it ended at 3 pm and all the food was cold and stale.) The flan was completely burnt,... More

That title should tell you all! Went in around six to pick up a menu - staff attentive, few people in at that time. Went in about an hour later - few customers in, but much less attentive staff. "Can't sit there it's closed". Menu given and drinks order taken - nothing, nothing and more nothing! Two wait staff shared... More

This was my third time going there and will be the last one as well. The service was horrible even with the restaurant 90% empty. Their service needs lots and lots of improvement as well the food. Either too much salt or spices on their dishes. It took a long time to get the food out, some items were requested... More
