This used to be a decent mexican restaurant which we frequented often but changed managment and the food quality went down. We refuse to eat here anymore. The only reason I didn't give it terrible was because I didn't get sick afterwards.

I tried this place based on its participation in the sky dining program, and I have no reason to return. The place was not busy at all, yet neither of the first 2 people who saw me, even bothered to greet me with a hello. Nonetheless, I waited to pick up my order; it took longer than predicted, but not... More

Good not great mexican. Everything was all good. No complaints. Just not a place I'd go out of my way to go back to or refer. Salsa was average. Guac was average. Chicken had an interesting spice and was almost really tender. One awesome thing was the chicken taco! I'd go back for 3 of those.

This is the "go to" Mexican restaurant near our office. It is usually busy around lunch time and parking can sometimes be challenging. Like many other restaurants, the quality of the food and service can vary from day to day. Overall, the majority of my experiences have been very positive. We stopped in for lunch yesterday and the food and... More

Typical TexMex for Atlanta plus some good chef specialties. Good margaritas and cold beer. Good, timely, and friendly service.

I have eaten at this chain before at another location & was very satisifed but this one needs help. Service was slow, food was hard & not quite hot enough in temperature. Waiter got our drinks wrong & it took forever to get them.

Good, quick service. Our waiter was quick with greeting us and kept the glasses full.Very good fish tacos. The right mix of hot and cool, crunchy slaw and a taste mix between the sweet slaw and the mildly salty grilled tilapia.

Great ambiance, good food, friendly service, and reasonably priced. What more could you ask for? We thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

Clean. Fun atmospere. Pretty good food. Had an enjoyable time. They were celebrating somebody's birthday the night we went and so it was a very festive atmosphere. Lots to eat and drink and the food servers were so friendly. Would go back. Actually did eat there twice. Both times a good experience.
