Great Food excellent service

Went here after the races with family party of 6. We made a reservation off trip advisor because of the great reviews. The reviews were correct. The food was excellent. Steak was very tender and portions were large. Left there stuffed. Wait staff was very attentive. Gave us free shot of tequila and... read more

Went for dinner. Not a lot of folks there. Atmosphere was typical colorful Mexican painted decor. Food was your average Mexican selection with some expensive specials. We had enchiladas suizes and flautas. Just average. But the staff is attentive. Brings lots of chips with Good salza. Then brings small cheese quesadilla before meal served. Then after dinner they bring a... More

The service was attentive and wonderful! It felt like visiting family (well, nice family!) The food is good and there is a great selection of vegetarian options.

We went here for dinner. There was an odor that permeated through the whole dinner. The waitress was not accommodating. Pretty much just plain old regular Mexican fare. I would not go again

Based on this restaurant's Tripadvisor ratings, we thought we were going to a very nice restaurant. Instead, it was one step above a dive! Upon entering, we noticed illegally parked cars all over the property (fortunately, not on cinder blocks). After a fifteen minute wait for a table, we sat down and were ignored for quite a while. The restaurant... More

Wow! It just doesn't get any better! Gracious host, attentive waitstaff and amazing food. We had combo platters starting with a large fresh salad and red sangria which was all of the highest quality. And surprise a free banana dessert and tequila at the end. We look forward to returning to this fun place!

We chose to eat here with some trepidation. We were in the mood for good Mexican food and the TripAdvisor ratings while very good were not outstanding. We ate dinner at a busy time (7pm). We were seated immediately. We received our drinks and complementary quesadillas promptly. However, it took quite some time to order. The appetizers arrived soon after.... More

I will start with the fact that I hate Mexican food. Was with a large party and didn't have much of a choice. Well, I was quite pleasantly surprised by the diverse and flexible menu. In addition the food was delicious. I had a shrimp dish in white sauce with rice....nothing spicy. Everyone else had the typical Mexican flair and... More
