Not only was this the place of our first date, we celebrated our new engagement here too! We often eat here, a favorite for speed and a good meal. The prices are great, very affordable.

The Zucchini Tacos (two tacos soft flour shells, stuffed with grilled zucchini, onions, tomatoes, feta cheese, lettuce, broccoli coleslaw, black beans or refried beans.) were very bland. The bean burrito had refried beans in a flour tortilla with red sauce over the top of it. Both dishes felt slopped together without any care in the preparation. The rice was prepared... More

Asked to speak to the manager and the guy I asked claimed to be the manager. I believe he was lying, but told him I found blondish brown hair in my nachos. He looked... More

Food and service average. Location very good! On the river with a great view. Menu large and prices moderate. Recommended for lunch. Large bar inside. Service ok.

We used to visit this place quite a bit because the staff was friendly and attentive. The last two times I have been there, two different servers ended their shift without telling us, so there was no one to wait on us.

We have always had great food & fast service here. Once or twice something was not to our liking and the manager took care of and made it right! I see some negative reviews here and think if people would let the manager know, they would make it right. No place is perfect, but this is my favorite Mexican restaurant... More

The food and Margaritas are superb. The service is attentive without being intrusive. The riverside restaurant has a beautiful view of downtown Toledo and the sunset. I have never left there hungry.

The food is just average. the service was really slow this time. My only reason for coming here is the mini pitchers of margaritas.

The table side guacamole was AMAZING! I ordered a side of refried beans and a side order of 1 cheese enchilada. The prices were so reasonable. The service was fantastic. The atmosphere clean and warmly decorated. A definite must do if you love Mexican food. :)
