The restaurant it's self is crammed and uncomfortable. The waiter was very fast but not very personable. Had worse, been to better.

The price is great for what you get. Pollo ranchero is great, nice and spicy. Margaritas are really cheap but not very strong. The place is always packed, and the tables are pretty close together. Wait time for a table is fast though, which is good because there's really nowhere to stand while you wait. There are signs advertising that... More

The value and quality of the food here is outstanding. I usually order take outs, tilapia or fried fish (forgot whats it called). The amount of tortilla chips they give with every order is enough to last a week.

Stopped in on a Saturday for an early dinner with friends. Happened to be a holiday weekend when World Cup soccer was being shown on the large screen TVs. Still, we were seated right away with no waiting. Our party of 6 included some vegetarians and some omnivores. The drinks and appetizers arrived almost immediately, along with salsa and warm...

We visit here at least twice a month. Never had a bad meal and have tried several menu items. Chips are amazing and so is the salsa. The special 'Jim's Nachos' are a crowd favorite. Pepsi tastes better than ever here too. Servers are great. Service is fast. Always take visitors when they are in from out of town. Definately... More

Right after you sit down, a basket of warm tortilla chips and fresh salsa is placed in front of you. They have fast service, friendly staff, killer margaritas, and very reasonable prices. What more could you ask for in a restaurant?

Fast service, friendly staff, big portions. Good mexican food. A bit heavy on the cheese for my taste, but otherwise it was great. Any one of the only places open on a Sunday night!
