Go here about once a month. Food is delivered hot and tasty. Salsa is weak and thin but hot. Mixed Fahitas very good but steak could be more tender. Some servers English needs work.

Food okay, nothing special simply a run of the mill Mexican food, margarita was nothing more than a sweet pre-mixed drink, the music in the bar area was to loud and our server was horrible. Also did not care at all for the bald headed and bearded Muslim looking on the manager(?). He pulled up a chair to a booth... More

Recently visited while on business in the area. Service was good, food was ok, nothing special that would make me want to return? Maybe it was just what I ordered? Chicken and Mexican sausage. Just not much flavor.

We wanted Mexican, and it was across the street from the Hampton Inn. Food was very good. We had the fajita combination. It was big enough to share. The waiter brought me the wrong beer but it was cold so I drank it. Restaurant was clean, staff was friendly, service was good.

I went here with a large group of friends. My husband and I had a late lunch so we got a few drinks each as well as the chips & dips. We enjoyed ourselves but the people we were with said the food was marginal and they would not return, for the price they were disappointed. I really liked the... More

Although the service was good, we were both disappointed in the food. We ordered guacamole for our chips and were served little more than an overly processed mashed avocado. My husband had the beef fajitas, which had almost no seasoning and lots of bell peppers. My chicken enchiladas had very little cheese and very very bland. Would not eat here... More

We stopped for some appetizer and drinks on a Saturday afternoon - loved the little outdoor area - also have indoor seating. Had chips with homemade avocado and 3 different types of salsa - loved chips and dips. Group had variety of their specialty drinks all very good and strong.

We ate here because of the proximity to our hotel (Comfort Inn). They had loud music playing so you could not hear the person across from you. The food was acceptable but disappointing. Service was just ok - few waiters and full house. Would not visit again. We had gone there previously (3-4 years ago) and had a good experience.... More

My husband and I ate here since it was close to our hotel, the Hampton Inn. I ordered a taco salad with chicken fajita meat. The tortilla shell was overly brown, the chicken was tender but somewhat tasteless, and it was very soupy with some lettuce, tomato, etc. on top. That was not my idea of a salad. My husband... More
