I've been waiting to visit ever since I moved down the street. I love it! The service and food was amazing, prices were as expected. The chunky guacamole was delicious - I wanted to lick the bowl it was so good! There was a family seated next to us, and the staff was great with the kids. Can't wait... read more

I had eaten here twice prior and decided to visit again. The sweet tea was good as well as the cheese dip with jalapeno and chips. The meal, aside from the Taco, was bad. So bad that I couldn't eat it. I immediately asked for a to-go box to take the food to our dogs and commented to my girlfriend... More

The restaurant was very close to our hotel and we were in the mood for a margarita. Our waitress was somewhat aloof and seemed to impatient when we asked questions about the menu, which was extensive. The margies were inexpensive but weak. We ordered chicken fajitas which were good. I asked twice for some hotter salsa and the waitress never... More

This used to be one of the best Mexican restaurants in town, but it has been very bad the last two times we've been there. The food is not even up to microwave dinner standards. The salsa was too tomatoey, and lacking flavor. The fish tacos smelled like bad fish and tasted the same. The chicken in the flautas was... More

Stopped here on the way to Florida. Very pleasantly surprised. Great balanced meals with large portions. The margarita I had was amazing! Very reasonably priced. Service was quick and food was hot.

Went to this restaurant with some coworkers. The meals were very typical mexican fare for most of the US now. They tried a few different combinations, but there was nothing that wowed me to the point I would be directing people to go back there.

This is a regular place for my family. Most consistently good Tex Mex in Henry or Clayton counties. Grrat service as well.

The food was amazing and the staff was nice! I ordered the mini tostada salad, and my colleague ordered the enchiladas. They were quick to serve and food was hot when it arrived.
