Start your meal with one of three salsas and homemade tortilla chips. If there for happy hour order the margarita special. They have a choose your one, two, or three enchiladas place that comes with rice, beans and or papas...request these,taste great! Enjoy a good family evening!!

Nice aesthetics and festive atmosphere hosts a bountiful menu with a nice drink assortment that goes well with the Tex-Mex and Mexican entree choices. The disappointment comes with the entrees. While good, they aren't great and the atmosphere and prices make one expect great. My brother-in-law makes better bacon-wrapped shrimp in his own kitchen, for example. The places gets a... More

This is a really good mexican restaurant and we enjoy eating here. We always start with a Platinum margarita which is very good. The trio of salsa they bring out are all very good especially the green one. Last time I was there I got Pescado Guerrero which is barramundi fish filets in a fantastic white wine sauce. I highly...

There were so many good looking things on the menu. I decided on the tilapia tacos. They were good. A little bland. But what was really good were the mashed potatoes with peppers and seasoning in them. A side instead of rice. The chips with 3 different salsas as a complimentary starter is a nice touch.

Had lunch there today - the food was good - better than most Mexican restaurants in the Cincinnati area, But the music was ATROCIOUS ! ! - - too loud, too much bumpin' thumpin' rock style trash. Could not hear lunch mates talking without straining. It really downgraded what would have otherwise been a pleasant experience. And this was not... More

Stopped in for lunch one day. Our waitress was prompt and pleasant. Nacho chips were nice and thin and the three salsas served with the chips were good, with nothing being overly spicy. Good margarita and waitress asked whether I wanted salt or not. Entrees were huge - loved the chile rellenos and chicken tacos. Decor was nice - loved... More

Food is great but is a bit pricey even on lunch. Their new mini appetizers are really good. I recommend stuffed chicken and papas con queso. The décor is beautiful.
