I love Mexi food, so we gave it a shot. It was good. Nothing special but I would go again. It has an okay atmosphere with nice and friendly employees. the steak american is good.

I read a few of the other reviews that said that the food here was good. I had wondered if they had ate at a different restaurant. Two of us decided to eat at the restaurant even though my first instinct would be to NOT eat at this restaurant due to seeing other establishments packed with people and relatively few... More

Had a fabulous dinner tonight at this wonderful restaurant. There were four of us and we shared the salsa and chips. They also had a great white sauce with the chips! We are new to the area but enjoyed the shrimp quesadilla and the steak fajita. The table side guacamole was delicious. Don't miss out on that. Margaritas were delicious.... More

It's good, nothing out of the ordinary but it's good. Wait staff are generally attentive. It is exactly what you would expect from a typical Mexican restaurant with slightly higher prices due to the resort town location.

Arrived at this place around 8:00pm on a Thursday, there were only two other parties in the building. Our meal started with chips, salsa, and sweet ranch dressing (not sure why they serve that). Next my salad came out with more of the sweet ranch on it (my husband ate it). Our entree's came out and my chori pollo was... More

Really good food. Served nicely. Portion size mega - even I had to concede defeat and half my colleagues reckon I'm Yorkshire's equivalent of Adam Richman!!

The service was excellent for the 10 people we put around an extended table. The kids drinks came out quickly and the adult beverage of the day was to die for. We sampled the smaller drink and it was enough to put a glow on us for the rest of the day. Oh. the food is excellent and the selections... More

We went here 3 times in a week! Service was always great as was the food. We are gluten-free and appreciated the option of delicious home-made corn tortillas with meals. Family owned restaurant.

I ordered food to pickup on a Wednesday evening. When I got home two things with my order were incorrect--one being that I got red salsa when I asked for green/tomatillo. When I called to tell them my order was wrong the person who answered argued with me that she had given me green. I told her I was staring... More

After many disappointing experiences with Mexican food in the area, this was a nice surprise. While not the same as I get in the southwest, it is good and consistent. Pleasant staff. For me is a regular weekly event.
