Good Mexican Atmosphere but a Tad Laking Otherwise

I really like the look of this restaurant. It has a nice outdoor eating area with enough screening foliage to keep out the fact you're on a 6 lane highway. The service was pretty nonchalant, however, and the guacamole was very skimpy on my chalupa. When I asked for more I was offered a side... read more

We eat at one of the two locations in Roswell at least once a month. This restaurant participates in the Sky Dining Program which is a great benefit. We like the chips and salsa, the chips are always fresh and salsa is spicy. We usually order the same things, fajita's, taco salad, burritos or fish tacos and are never disappointed.... More

A great place for lunch or dinner. The restaurant is packed at lunch so try to get there early. The food is consistently good. The Speedy Gonzales is excellent for lunch.

We have eaten here several times at both lunch and dinner. We usually sit at a table next to the bar unless we are with a group larger than four. This is our favorite Mexican food restaurant in the area. I usually get a Poblano plate and a Top Shelve Margarita. The menus offer a wide variety of selections of... More

We come here all the time, and never are disappointed. They have authentic fare, but we always end up ordering the "generic" stuff like fajitas, lunch combos with tacos, enchiladas, etc.) and they are ALWAYS great. We've decided that we like places with homemade red sauces with heavy chili powder, and they definitely deliver on that! One of our favorites,... More

Salsa and queso excellent. My favorite dish is the chicken with pineapple, I can't remember the name. Great service and great margaritas.

Good location with plenty of parking. Food just average in every way, service a bit lacking. Quesadilla had shredded chicken, with little seasoning.

Good Mexican food, says they guy from New Mexico. Enchiladas with green chile were outstanding, service fast...despite being in a group of 15. I'd go back.

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.
