For reference sake, I have lived 6 years in Mexico, and my wife is Mexican. We both agreed on our experiences. The decor/architecture feels like being in a Hacienda, or in other words, the best part of the visit. The food was definitively average. The soft corn tortillas were out of a bag, as were the appetizer chips, and the... More

I found that the unfriendly staff overshadowed our enjoyment of the food. It felt like we not welcome. The staff was not friendly at all. Not one smile in the whole place.. I was glad to leave it was so unpleasant.

Good Margharitas, the traditional cheesey smothered tex mex food, the quality isn't great (my last carnitas was chewy and kinda below par) but the atmosphere is kitschy fun

Nice atmosphere, decent food, weak drinks, and slow service. That about sums up our visit. The food was ok, nothing special. The service was pretty slow, but friendly. We've not had much luck finding margaritas to rival those of a local Mexican restaurant we frequent. The one here were weak and lacking in flavor. The atmosphere was really neat though.... More

we visited this restaurant on 2/09/2014 and I can start to tell you how disappointed I was With the slow service. When we first walk in the door we had to wait for somebody to come up and greet us,and the restaurant was not even busy. The only reason someone came up to us was because we said something, and...

Every time my friends drag me to this place it makes me think I need new friends. Food sucks. No flavor in anything. Crappy salsa and chips. It's just a generic chain restaurant. Pass

I had been here several years ago, but just recently returned with my husband. We enjoyed a delicious supper there. My husband had the taco salad, a side order of guacomole, and a Coors. I had the fajita quesadilla and a strawberry soda. I could not begin to finish my entree, so I took some home. Very tasty! There are... More

Reasonable good Mexican. Service was excellent. Decor is straight from Mexico, including, tables and chairs. Took me back to when I lived in Texas and went to Mexico frequently. Chimichangas with beef tips were very good. Beef was very tender. Fajitas were also good as was the quesadilla pollo.
