They have had lots of personnel issues in recent years and, unfortunately, this seems to be reflected in the quality of the food.

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

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

Based on other user reviews I was trying to decide between this restaurant and Buen Apetito. I chose this one because everybody mentioned that they had great ambiance and we wanted to have some fun. Yes, the ambiance is great, their cocktails were fine (not the best margaritas but better than a chain restaurant), their food was good but not... More

Ok I live in San Diego so I am rather picky about mexican food. The service here is very good and they are nice and attentive. The food while decent has a few issues, I find the meat chicken, beef to have been overcooked and dry on the last 2 visits. For the area I consider decent, however if in... More

It was a Tuesday night and I was the only person at the bar. Wait staff was friendly but not very available.. they were off doing... More
