Good, inexpensive food.

Good food, great service, menu was extensive. Salsa could be a little hotter. Location was close to hotels and shops.

I have to say that my expectations were not high and they lived up to it! Our waitress was unable to pronounce the names of any wine (and did not know what they had) I asked for a Cabernet and she said she did not think they had that, and I suggested a merlot. She returned with a glass of... More

If you want to have genuine South of the Border food for lunch, or dinner, this is the place. All the foods are prepared, and delivered to your table, at lightening speed; the menu selections seem never ending and the prices are a bargain. Take the time to review the combination plates if you like a little variety for a... More

They are quite good at Mexican food, with the Chicken Soup being a notable choice, as well as their Fajitas. Very friendly service and most items are quite good.

The food was traditional Tex-Mex and tasty. The service was friendly and prompt. We would go back again when in the area.

Have eaten here several times over the years and always had good food. Service has been good also. The décor is dated and could use an update.

I used to eat here all the time when I was in college but hadn’t eaten there in a few years. It wasn’t horrible by any means but it just wasn’t as good as it use to be. The salsa was a huge disappointment that was always one of my favorite things that this restaurant was that they had great... More

But since the reviews were good, we went for dinner. The food was great, the service attentive. The only disappointment was that they were out of bananas for the Fried Banana dessert! Didn't disappoint. Quesadillas were large for the price, and other portions were generous too.
