PARKING LOT FULL!

Dinner our first night in town! Good house Margaritas, but pricey! Waitress said 16 oz was the best deal, at $11.00 a piece? Food was better than average, hard to find great Tex/Mex or Mexican around here - might go back some day.

Stopped here for lunch on a recent Lake trip, and wasn't disappointed. My friends got the chimichangas, which got rave reviews, though I opted for the Taco Salad bowl, which was massive and tasty. I ate about half and took the rest home, made another meal for me later! We also all got margaritas, of which I wasn't a big... More

Food taste was not good. Taco salad was very wet. Like they used very wet ingredients . Very disappointed. salsa was warm and had little flavor. Service was ok.

I heard some good things about this place before going. I was terribly disappointed when I left. We visited on a Wednesday afternoon for lunch. The place was maybe 1/2 full. By no means at all were they busy or being "slammed". To start out with, the service in general was among some of the worst in recent memory. It... More

The food was very good and the service was excellent. We did have to wait twenty- minutes before we could be seated but the time seemed to go fast. They were able to serve a party of 8.

We enjoyed the white queso as an appetizer. Once we added in their fresh pico.. It was over the top! The margarita I enjoyed was fantastic. We met the owner when in. She was lovely.

I tend to judge Mexican restaurants on 2 criteria--salsa and margaritas. Both were to my liking. The main dishes were very tasty as well. Good service and really nice atmosphere.

Went for lunch and had margaritas. They were an odd color. And not sure they remembered to put in the tequila. I'm not a drinker so it wasn't an issue but my tacos came and the meat was ok but the rice and beans were very cold. my friend had a burrito and there was little meat in it. The... More

This is one place that I have never been disappointed in. From the food to the drinks to the service. Hands down the best. Nobody has better hot wings either.
