The service you will receive is awesome! They start you out with salsa and chips which are tasty...They have a great menu with a good amount of choices! I usually get a quesadilla with double beans! :)

This is a terrific Mexican restaurant. The food is prepared fresh and the frozen margaritas are delicious. I enjoyed the fajitas. The chicken was fresh and cooked properly and arrived on a sizzling pan with lots of vegetables. The smell was awesome. Service was great with the staff buzzing around the restaurant attending to our every need. Glasses never stayed... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat out. The prices aren't bad and the food is great. Margaritas are nice and come in many sizes. Favorite meal is the shrimp fajitas.

I liked how it didn't matter who our waitress was, all of the staff poured water and made sure the chips and... More

Lunch was fast almost too fast. Big open room with not very much charm. The food was good and presentation was average. If you are looking for a quick and no frills lunch that is not a chain burger joint, this is the place.

We stopped here because of the reviews on here. The service was very good and the restaurant itself was nice. The menu sounded great but when we got our food it was just OK. Nothing fresh and everything was deep fried and greasy. We ordered the sampler appetizer to try some variety and it was pretty funny, one of the... More

I have Celiac disease and wanted a place to eat that I wouldn't get sick at. I have to say, our waitress was wonderful and seemed to be running the place. The food was delish!! Fresh and good!! I would recommend this place to anyone.
