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.

Pretty good Mexican fair. I've been here several times and always been satisfied. Authentic food and décor.

So, I'm from Texas, and feel like I know a bit about Mexican food. Everything they brought out, including the salsa, had some sort of Sour Cream on it. If you order enchiladas, or anything else for that matter, make sure to tell them to skip the sour cream unless its what you really want.

We ate here on a business lunch and enjoyed the drinks, food and watching the world cup game. Food was excellent and out of town mexican associate liked it also. Shrimp taco, steak and sides were all done very nicely. Great service and we scored the table next to the TV so all was good. Would come back again...

I ate with my parents last week. The food and service was good. The only reason I didn't give them a 5 star was that it was so loud. We asked for the music to be turned down and they did so but it was still loud. Great place for college kids and families. I would go back.

Ate here on a Sunday afternoon, food and service were fine. Nothing special but nothing disappointing either. I would go back, but wouldn't travel out of my way to do it.

I was COMPLETELY disgusted! I was waiting at the bar for my take out order and a waiter came out with a handful if "clean" flatware and proceeded to roll in napkins, 4 sets for his table. The pile of flatware he brought out to roll had food (rice, chicken, etc.) stuck to it! Thankfully, he chose flatware for his... More

If Mexican is your thing this place is right on 123. Very cozy with emphasis on COZY, like very tight seating. Good service and food. Forget it on game days or college weekend events. Small parking lot too, it's definately "COZY" as well!

The service was piss poor as apparently the server was more interested in the soccer game than paying customers. Their mole had a beautiful deep dark color and looked tasty however the cinnamon was way to heavy and overpowered the food. The salsa was weak and tasteless. Overall the experience was truly disappointing.
