What a disappointment!

I wanted to support the new location in front of the mall so I stopped in for a late lunch. Terrible food and the service was even worst. All the employees standing around talking to each other and not waiting on the customers. First and last visit.

I am always going to notice if a place is really clean or if somebody just gave it a swipe to please the health inspectors. This place is squeaky clean, even the pottery on the wall never shows signs of dust. And the food is really good, and very much what you will find in Mexico. Every time I go... More

Located for years at another location, this restaurant just moved into a beautiful remodeled building. As I walked in, I was impressed with the look of the building and the great iron work on the front doors. The great iron work continued in the bathrooms as well. Probably the best looking bathrooms I've seen in any Mexican restaurant. It looks... More

Just to be clear, this review is for the new location in front of the mall. Right from the beginning it was bad. Tried to seat my wife and I right next to the kitchen in/out door, asked to sit somewhere else and received "the look". Sat down to order and menu is a joke as was the food. Chips... More

Had to wait in line to get seated. Seemed like each group to be seated took 5 minutes. Waited quite a while for someone to take drink order. Asked for 1800 Gold Margarita, got house tequila of poor quality. Food was bland. My enchiladas were so hard I could not cut shell. Will not return.

We just got done eating here. The food was horrible but the building is nice. Prices are ridiculous! I will not come back. Our waiter was great but that was all.

Arrived around 9 and asked waiter what tume they closed and if the kitchen was still serving. We were advised all was good and order anythung we wanted. Bad mistake. Cold Food. Lousy Service. Dont let the new building lure you in. I'm sure we could have had better mexican out if the frozen food section of the 7 ~11.

Stopped by dinner the other night. I was quickly seated and waited on. Nice basket of warm chips came to the table pretty quickly I had a vegetarian combo. Bean Taco, Cheese quesadillo and a bean tostada. It came with rice and beans. Pretty good deal for $8.00
