It is the best in town and you know it because the wait is Always an hour and a half on the weekends! But the margaritas are worth it!

Bell peppers in everything. I have a severe reaction to bell peppers. No problems with jalepeno's or other peppers. I could not find anything appetizing on the menu that they could make without bell peppers. Really?

The restaurant has a nice Mexican ambiance, with an outdoors area. It was Labor Day and the restaurant was full which resulted in rationing of the complimentary nachos. The service was average. The food did remotely taste Mexican. It was very bland, I expected a more tangy and zesty food.

This place has EPIC food. It is authentic, and available at a reasonable price. I have brought guests from out of town, and they consistently ask to come back to this restaurant.

We keep trying to give this restaurant a second, third, fourth (you get the idea) chance, however, we always leave disappointed. Just not quite satisfied. The food is not bad, but it lacks that "oh wow, that was delicious" factor.

We had a girls night here a few weeks ago and I ordered a pitcher of my favorite: sangria. There was a 40-minute wait but it was well worth it. We sipped sangria on the outdoor patio that's overflowing with chairs and tables made for cocktails and waiting for the best Mexican food this side of Mexicantown in Downtown Detroit.... More

After going here dozens of times over maybe 20 years, I recently visited and I could not believe how quickly it has fallen to well below average, actually bad. In the past the food was consistently terrific and the wait staff her also consistently exceptional. I recently went there, and their beer tap was broken so only bottled beers were... More

I have been to this restaurant so many times over the past 15-20 years. I grew up in the area and started eating here for family get-togethers/birthdays. Over time, I started to go more and more with friends, family and even alone. The food is amazing! The price is great (lunch could be a little cheaper). The staff is fantastic... More

Our family has come here, or the downtown restaurant for at least 25 years! My favorite are their enchiladas and salsa and chips. The queso fundido is another choice. Great for an appetizer. All of the meals work for us. Yummy!
