Everything was wonderful and plentiful!

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... read 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

I have had several different things and all were very good. Service is super! Chimichangas are not what I am used to. They are smaller than others I have had.

We love the complementary appetizers, desserts and tequila shots. The staff is always kind and attentive. In addition to expected "Mexican" cliche platters there are dishes on the menu you wouldn't normally find outside of Mexico or Texas. Dont expect gourmet food or chic decor. But you will be pleased with the quality, variety and service.

I love this place. Every time I have a chance, I go there. The food is always delicious, the free desert is a great idea, and a free shot of tequila is always welcome. The only suggestion that comes to my mind is, to expend the menu with a vegetarian dishes, because as of now there is only one...

Went here on recommendation. Was crowded but luckily we got atable right away. Food came fairly quickly too. Atmosphere and service was great. I had the chimichangas which were very good my wife had the chalupas which she did not like. The shells were greasy tasting and soggy. Overall, you do get bottomless chip and salsa basket, free desert AND... More
