What can I say: my granddaughter's favorite restaurant and as a result we are there at least once a week and many times twice. Food is always good, service fast, premises clean and a good value meal.

My wife and I walked to this local establishment...it was only a few minutes from where we live...and were not disappointed. It had been a while since we were there, but it continues to offer the same great food, great drinks and excellent service...all at affordable or average prices (for Mexican food). We had a spectacular Fajita (chicken) salad. Now,... More

My wife and I live close and always enjoy going here. Food is good, nothing fancy, just good. I usually get the Vallarta special and a top-shelf margarita, which is quit strong and quit good. This place is sometimes busy, but we can always get in quickly. I highly recommend it!

My wife and I had been here years ago and it was time to go back. She enjoyed #19 off the Combination Dinners Menu, while I opted for #32, the single version. You can get it for 2 as well. We were quite amazed at the amount of food that was brought to the table. I took about half of... More

I have not been too impressed with this restaurant. My parents and sister love this place but, it is not close to the Mexican food we got in San Diego. In fact, I have tried quite a few different entrees - their fajitas are over cooked, chimichanga was bland, and their burritos and tacos are ok. They best thing on... More

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

I am not a friend of Mexican food but came here on the recommendation of a friend. I had to look for a while to find somehting that did not come with rice and refried beans. I got a chicken dish and a small side salad instead of the rice. It was very tasty. The margueritta (we had a small... More
