Great Lunch Location

Good food. Quick service. Great place for lunch. You can actually hear the person you're talking to.

The worst Mexican food I've ever had! Got fajitas for two and after waiting an hour? Got a plate with four shrimp, half a chicken breast, and three pieces of steak!!!!! Sent it back after asking what it was for 23.99 and they brought it back with the same but added more onions and pepper? You have to be kidding?... More

It's easy to find Mexican food but not good food close to home. This place has a great menu with lots of good beers. The fajitas are the best in town and the chips and salsa will give you all the carbs you need.

We used to go here on a regular basis but got tired of the loud music and old menu. Went back recently. The loud music is no more. The menu has been changed. Now we have a very large selection of items that are well prepared with a fair price. The service is promped, proffesional and very friendly. An excellent... More

Food was good, service was a little slow but they was pretty busy. Great value for those pinching a penny.

This had to of been the worst service I have ever received anywhere. It took a good 45 minutes to be seated, the "host" never wrote anyone's name down and did not go in any sort of order. But instead said, "who's next" whenever a table became available. Mind you this was a packed Friday night with large groups everywhere.... More

At least I hope this location is the worst of their chain because, frankly, if this is the best, I don't know how they stay in business. Upon arrival, we were ignored. There was only one other couple in the place. When we got seated, we placed Margarita orders and ordered a guacamole appetizer. We noticed the table was sticky... More

This restaurant has promise. The building is quite nice and the interior looks great. However, that is not the main reason why you would want to come here I suppose. The food is rather average and took quite a long time to arrive. The menu is quite ordinary. The complimentary chips are cold and stale. Nothing much to get excited... More

Food is good, service is very good. We like their special white sauce for dipping. We like to eat outdoors in the little garden area.
