Nice service-food is fine-margaritas not so good.

We have eaten here 3 or 4 times in the last couple of years. The food is pretty good and there is a large selection. The waiters are always very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is pretty good as well. The margaritas are pretty watered down and they always served them in glasses fresh out of... read more

I hadn't been in a few years and stopped by last night. I will say that the happy hour house margaritas are a good value for $6. Also, the waiter we had was very attentive and made up for the poor quality of the food, which we found to be very low quality. Sort of like a fast food /... More

Very nice server...very polite and accommodating...however average food...outside dining, although we opted to sit inside. Chips were good, salsa was very watery, so the anticipated intense and great flavors were definitely compromised...absent. I had the shrimp fajitas...very few shrimp, but the onions and peppers were appropriately steaming hot...Pico de Gallo was pretty good (fresh veggies). Black beans cost a bit... More

Several years ago this would have been my top choice for Mexican in this part of the state. Now it disappoints in comparison to it older self. It's still okay, but not exceptional. Service is pretty good, nice setting.

Went to the restaurant around 4:30 PM expecting to have a nice meal. My wife and I entered the restaurant and there was no one at the hostess desk. We waited and waited but were totally ignored. Someone who I assumed to be the bartender (because he kept going back behind the bar) came to the station a couple of... More

For many years was one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in the area. They have had lots of personnel issues in recent years and, unfortunately, this seems to be reflected in the quality of the food. We started out inside( since it was a very hot day and we were looking forward to air conditioning) but quickly headed for the... More

My friend and I went to Cancun for a paint night... That was a lot of fun, but I'm here to warn you about the restaurant. I ordered the "special nachos" that sould have been my first hint... The menu said they had meat, tomatoes, sour cream, cheese lettuce and guacamole. I ordered them without the tomatoes or guac. When... More

I'm not usually one for Mexican food and was unsure if this would be any better when my friend and I went here. So I was surprised by the taste and quality of the food. It tasted amazing and they worked around my friend's seafood allergies which was greatly appreciated. The service was awesome and I loved the food and... More

I love the food here. I could probably drink buckets of the queso dip. I've tried several things on the menu and never been disappointed. It is also very inexpensive! In addition, the food always comes out very quickly, the service is fantastic. Their margaritas are huuuuge and generally strong. This place is rarely busy, which I would only attribute... More
