While the food is very yummy, it is your typical neighborhood Mexican restaurant type food. However, the restaurant is wonderfully decorated and the wait staff are gracious and friendly. What keeps us coming back are the margaritas. They are FANTASTIC and moderately priced. Of all the Mexican restaurants in the area (and there are a lot), this one is definitely... More

Always really good food, friendly service and cold beer. We generally bring a large group and they serve us quickly and efficiently.

We took our son in law here for his birthday and he loved it. The food was good and the staff put a sombrero on our son in law's head while they sang happy birthday to him. Everything was good and the prices were reasonable and the service was fine.

My business colleagues and I came here for dinner 2 out of the 5 nights and we were never disappointed with the food or the drinks. The owner of the restaurant was extremely nice and her staff was always attentive. I really appreciated the fact that they went out of their way to make sure we had enough tortilla chips,... More

I fell in love when I got the Presidente Margarita. The chicken was very well cooked with spinach and cheese. Chunky guacamole was very good and so was the Spanish rice. No complaints everything was great.

The margaritas here are wonderful! I enjoyed the food so much I ate here 2 days in a tow and would have 3 but went out of town before they opened for lunch! My server from first day saw me the second day and thanked me for coming back. I had the chicken Azteca and it was very good.

Our family LOVES Mexican. We love trying every Mexican Restaurant around to find our favorite. For reasons unknown, this is my in-laws' "go-to' Mexican place( and i love my in-laws!). I had to eat here with them 3 times before I finally had the guts to request eating somewhere else for Mexican every once in a while. The only thing... More

Good food and service. I got a huge margarita for $10. The chimichangas were very good and I would return again next time I'm in McDonough
