Decent Mexican restaurant

The décor is truly Mexican festive, as are the friendly wait staff. Great drinks and fresh guacamole made at the table to your liking is a big plus. Parking difficult, though worth a visit.

Hard to get parking. The area is not safe at night. Typical American style Mexican food, similar to fast food quality. Got the appetizer platter. All overly fried and greasy. Small restaurant. Drinks are average priced. Service is slow and employees are usually on their cell phones. Mens bathroom had toilet paper all over the place. The place can be... More

I came here for dinner on the rare and elusive date night (we have a toddler). Everything was great, they went out of their way to explain the menu and help me order because I had a ton of food restrictions I had to consider. If you are a vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, or lactose intolerant they will make sure... More

Like many other reviewers, we always find the quality of the food wonderful - from the chips & fresh salsa, tableside guacamole to the appetizers and entrees. The service can be pretty iffy however. Our last visit was this past week on my birthday - my husband told our server it was my birthday and he didn't even wish me... More

Been here a few times, food is always good. Service is usually so-so. Enjoyed several meals, and food has been fresh. Wait-staff not overly friendly.

This was our third time there the first two were good. My wife and I went for dinner tonight and the service was horrible when I complained all they had to say was they are understaffed, I asked for 2 waters before the meal and didn't get mine until after the meal was gone, my wife is still waiting for...

Enjoyed my experience with the Mexican food here. I thought my portion was smaller than another Mexican restaurant in the area but the quality was much better. I didn't know this place existed until a friend took me here. Looking forward to going back to try other entrees and the guacamole that everyone else mentioned on this site. Would of... More
