We had a very nice Lunch. I had the #8, at the suggestion of a friend, and it was quite good. This is a typical "Me, Too" type Mexican restaurant, but the staff is friendly, and service is reasonable. The Combo section of the menu is extensive, so you can get almost any combination imaginable. Lunch for 2 was less... More

Good service, tasty food! The lunch menu is simple, but nice. The lunch offerings are standard fare for Mexican, but the quality is good and the lunch prices can't be best!

It was wonderful! We all enjoyed our dishes. The food was great and the décor was authentic. The only odd thing was that it seemed strangely quiet in the easternmost dining room where we were. Like you could hear someone else 20 feet away scraping their cutlery on their plates. I suppose I'm used to more of a booming speaker... More

We shared a Mexican plate and a little of wine. Total for the two of us not including tax and tip - $16.99 Service is average and could use a bit of improvement.

This is a good place for Mexican Food. The interior decor is bright and reminiscent of "south of the border". Food is good, portions ample and pricing is reasonable. Staff is polite, but lacking in personality. I recommend the #26 from the menu, with chicken. Overall, nothing surprising. It's pretty much what one would expect, however, the food quality is...

We were going with the trip advisor recommendations of 2 higher rated mexican restaurants, but the hotel clerk suggested here. what a good decision! Pollo ranchero, the nights special was only $8.99. very good. Best thing: waiters had constant laughter and jovial demeanor. Shortcoming: chips pretty flavorless. See past that and you'll be happy!

Great food, great drinks, great service! And the salsa......absolutely the BEST ever! They will even sell you a cup of salsa to take home.
