The food was excellent!!!! The servers were extremely nice, polite and always had a smile and very help full when my son did not know what to get because he never had authentic Mexican food... He fell in love with it!!!! And wants to move next door... As a bonus it was fairly inexpensive for a family of four with... 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

Roaches on the floor, and other bugs on the wall are unacceptable... if I see this again, I will no longer eat there. Our server needs to speak and... More

The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. The staff were fast and friendly- they worked hard to make our group's dinner a good experience. They also have a terrific special on margaritas, so I'll definitely eat there again!

Maybe it's me but seems as though all the Mexican restaurants taste the same - not even good Tex-Mex let alone authentic Mexican.

Went here because of the high ratings on TA. Sat for 5 minutes before being greeted by a flustered server who had 3 tables max. He forgot that I ordered a margarita & another lady ended up getting me one 15 minutes later. He couldn't remember if he took our entree order even though our menus were still on the... More

The food was OK but I felt a little sick after eating there because of all the grease. My husband loved it though, ha.
