I ate the thursday special for the week, it was the Kentucky burrito. The Kentucky burrito is an extremely large burrito, I get mine with steak. All the food I've tried here has been good, but this item was great.

I usually dread going to a "mexican" restaurant...which is NOT a mexican restaurant. I believe they all order from the same warehouse, surely nothing is cooked on site, just warmed up. The rice is all the same, very, very salty. The meat is all the same, very salty, and the chips all taste the same. Ditto the salsa. So disappointing... More

The food is good. The employees are not. One waiter was to busy checking out, talking and sitting at another table. We were there for twenty minutes when I finally walked to the register to ask can I order a water for me and a pop for my friend. The guy at the register told me my waiter will take... More

My first time trying them out. Went as part of a buisness lunch group. We all enjoyed our dishes and the salsa was very good. The chicken fajita was excellent and the building was clean with clean restrooms. Will be returning.

I really enjoy this restaurant! The food is great, the service is on time, and we enjoy the atmosphere. My friend likes to practice his Spanish and the staff is good about spending a few minutes with him.

One of the better places for lunch if you want to avoid the fast food places. Service is fast, and good, and the chicken fahita I had was tasty.

They have many specials. My family loves the pizza and wings special for $10 on Saturdays. Happy hour has 1/2 off apps twice a day Mon - Fri.

We used to eat here weekly, but found that often the food was not hot. Especially the rice and beans would be stone cold. Stopped by today for lunch with the guys to see if it had improved. We were promptly seated and our orders taken as soon as we were ready. They do have a good salsa served with... More
