TERRIBLE!!! Terrible Customer Service

I was very disappointed in this restaurant. The inside is not inviting, the staff was rude and the food was terrible! This is not what I had expected from the outside. The cheese did not taste right. It tasted as if they had added water to it or something. I would NOT recommend this place to... read more

This is the worst mexican restaurant I have ever been to in my life. Everything is covered with cheese sauce, read the menu. The cheese sauce is watered down beyond what most restaurants do. Their enchilada sauce is worse than what you can buy at the grocery store and we make much better at home. The waitress we had was... More

One of my favorite spots for Mexican in WS. Excellent fajitas and salads. Service can be inconsistent, though: attentive to ignored! This used to be an Italian restaurant with hand painted murals of Italian scenes. When they converted it to a Mexican restaurant, they kept the original murals but airbrushed crude paintings of Mexican images on top of the Italian... More

You can't go wrong with a good Mexican restaurant. This place has a wide variety on the menu and very well priced in my opinion. Like any good mex place, I expect hot food on hot plates served quick for a sit down place. Check. Next I want the food to taste very good. Check check. Finally I want good... More

We ordered two the daily lunch specials. I had the fish tacos, my husband ordered the Speedy Gonzales. Both came with refried beans and rice. Our drinks were iced tea. The atmosphere was excellent. The servers were really friendly and helpful (real Mexicans but they spoke English very well). The food was among the best Mexican food we have ever... More

Good margaritas, go with regular. The top shelf is very strong. Food was good. Service fast and friendly. Atmosphere was ok, a little dirty and worn, but if you closed your eyes it was like being in Mexico. Had the typical dishes served at almost all Mexican restaurant's in the U.S., but with a twist. They also served several seafood... More

This is a good place to go for lunch to grab some Mexican food. It's not the best or the worse. Would certainly go there many more times.

Pretty good food, but nothing different than all of the other numerous Mexican restaurants in the area. Service was quick and food came out fast.

What a great place to enjoy good Mexican food. $6 combination plates is a deal. Fast friendly service. Parking lot is full for a reason!
