Don't tell me an onion skin is crabmeat in my seafood dish as you had to dig around to come up with that ...don't tell my wife that a tablespoon of meat and sour cream, a skinny slice of tomato and tons of lettuce is what you call your nacho plate... what garbage.

Not the most authentic Mexican food but a lot closer than most places. The food is really good and the prices are fair. Really love the size of the menu and some of the platter options here. Great place to hang with some friends and enjoy some drinks with your chips and salsa.

This is one of the best Mexican restaurants in the entire region in my opinion for authentic food. Though I feel there is a big difference in the service between this location and the one in Asbury location, this one is better!

From the first step in the door until leaving we were very impressed. Very clean, well decorated, lots of staff members to make this one of the best run restaurants in the World.

Food was ok, service was below average. Manager would not honor local coupons in Travel Dubuque magazine. Try to try local going back to chains.

Prompt service and pleasant atmosphere started off the meal right. The menu offered many selections which made the final selection challenging. I must have chosen the wrong entree as it fell short of expectations, based on what I'd been told about the pkace as my dinner companions both stated the choice was outstanding.
