More food than I could eat.

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... read 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

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
