This was the second time for us to eat here. Service is just horrible! They don't care about working here. We came in after 3 pm and just missed being able to order off the lunch menu. Got an attitude when I asked if it would be possible if we could. We should of left at this point. We went... More

I work for a large corporation and we just opened a store almost across the street from this place. We meet once every two weeks and I will not visit your restaurant again. Started we us waiting a table for a hostess for almost 15 minutes before a someone showed up, now I would understand if this was a rush... 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

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

This was my 3rd visit, and while the food & margaritas are still good, the service needs improvement, and there is now a bug problem that needs to be addressed immediately. 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!
