Great lunch buffet and music!

Lunch buffet is great! The service could be better but it's not horrible. They have great margaritas as well.

Excellent food. Superior service. Our waiter went out of the way to make sure we enjoyed our meal! I ordered one thing thinking it was something else and our server brought it on the side at no additional charge. Great atmosphere and very good Mexican food.

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

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
