Decent atmosphere and food

It's an attractive, clean place with above average food and pricing. A very good place to sit with friends after work for food and drinks.

I used to come to this restaurant and it has usually been ok. Today went there and all of us were disappointed in the food. The rice was dry and flavorless. The tamale was too thick of dough and filling not good. Salad taco shells didnt taste fresh. The only thing I liked were the refried beans and my diet... More

We like this restaurant and have visited it numerous times, even though it is a little bit of a drive from the NW Metro. It was very busy on our last visit, but we didn't have to wait to be seated - and our food arrived at the table surprisingly quickly. I love the free endless chips and salsa -... More

Visited this location for the first time today. My friend really enjoyed her tilapia, and I thought my Mexican grilled salad was very good. Service was excellent. The interior is beautiful...tiled walls and gorgeous stained glass windows that you can enjoy anywhere you sit. Would definitely come here again!

I dined here while working in the area recently. I enjoyed a "Perfect Margarita" and a fajita burrito. The servings are very large--so I enjoyed the leftovers for work. The service was also excellent!

If your looking for good, tasty Mexican food, this is the place to go. It is located off Central Ave with easy access to its parking lot. Please, don't be put off if the parking lot looks full. Inside, the restaurant is large enough to hold a big crowd. The prices are relatively inexpensive and the servings are large enough... More

If your looking for a fair priced reliable dab of Mexican flavors where anyone can find something on the menu to order this would be a good reasonably priced place... Loved their tacos el carbon..it is a grilled soft taco with a choice of marinated steak or chicken, if your really hungry la patron is a nice mix of items..... More

From Texas, I am used to some really good Mexican food. This was just so-so, but I did get a free meal because it was my birthday and my friend bought a meal. That was good.
