Great guacamole

Have gone here several times over the years. Recently tried the cheese enchilada. It was by far the best one I've ever had. Their guacamole is fresh and well flavored. I also tried the shrimp taco. These were fried and were mostly batter which gave the taco an unpleasant texture. Grilled shrimp... read more

The cars lined up to go through the drive-thru of this place almost made it impossible to pull into a parking spot! Me thinks their food must be incredible to draw that kind of business. Alas, much to our disappointment, we were very underwhelmed. The setup is like other fast food places – place your order at the counter, then... More

I visited for the first time and last time. I had read some good reviews on other sites and am very dissappointed to had paid $11.00 for 2 enchilada's, side of chips and soda. No lettuce, tomatoe or cheese toppings. No fancy plates. Food was cold and not freshly made. Then the cook yells your name when your order is... More

I used to love this place. Their shrimp tacos were so good! They were addicting. Then over the last few years they started to go downhill in quality. I'd get cold, rubbery, over cooked shrimp or burnt onions. I tried to talk to the owner about it twice over the years and was completely ignored. Today I went and the... More

This is a great "hole in the wall" place. Really good food. Good portions and fresh. I will be back.

We thought we were going to a sit down place where chips and salsa are brought to your table. Nope. You walk into this dive and order at the counter. We paid for it all.. Sodas, Cheese dip and Chips & salsa. Taco plate and nachos. About $35. You choose your salsa from a little buffet of salsas and put... More

The meat is sliced off of a vertical rotisserie, always tender and seasoned perfectly. The atmosphere is like being in a Mexican beach side restaurant. Great for kids too.

We just loved the food, the salsa and avocado dips accompany the tortilla chips. We ordered salad and the quesadillas filled with cheese and chicken with a dollop of cream cheese to add that extra punch. Self service but the staff are always helpful in recommending a dish if you are confused with choosing the right dish. The bar is... More

The other reviews offer all the positives about this place, but one thing most don't say is that they use shredded raw cabbage on any dish that would normally use lettuce. The taste is HORRIBLE. This egregious departure from any known form of Tex-Mex should be highlighted on the menu board in large letters to warn customers.

Nearly every Friday night I'll pick up a platter of delicious tex-mex food. The staff is always very friendly and courteous. The food is always of excellent quality and filling. Great prices for the amount of food. I highly recommend this place. I have only gone with the drive-through, but have always had a great experience. Check it out.
