Guilty Pleasure...

Have only been at lunch for the buffet but have done so four or five times. Not fusion or vegetarian/vegan oriented but solid comfort food! Prices are very reasonable. Wings are good and like making my own soft tacos.

I didn't care for the sweet salsa, but my chicken fajitas were good. Service is the only complaint and they had several workers... More

This place has a buffet, but we didn't eat from it. I guess it looked ok as far as buffets go, but I hardly ever eat from them and wouldn't want Mexican food from one. We were seated in a corner, which had to be the hottest place in the restaurant. To be clear, I don't love AC, but I... More

Some of the worst Mexican food I have ever had. Been traveling to Charleston for months and was missing my Mexican food. Finally decided to go here this past Wednesday night. They were doing a decent business so I thought it must be okay. The service was middle of the road at best. The food was lousy. The sangria was... More

Great food. Excellent service. Great value for money. We ate here every day on our trip to Charleston. Cannot recommend it enough. Family friendly restaurant. Try the horchetta. Huge beer mugs as well; beware :-)

We had the sizzling fajita platters. The beef was tender,the chicken nicely seasoned,the shrimp perhaps a touch over cooked but enjoyed all. Our waitress, Jasmine,was attentive and with her warm personality and sincere manner added to our evening. Would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone who wants a good meal in a warm environment. Like those margaritas as well.

Seriously guys, this place has a buffet at lunch! You can put queso cheese on everything. I eat here about once per quarter only because I probably gain 3 lbs because of all the food I eat. This is a must try if you are in the area!
