Not as good as it used to be

I grew up in Lexington and came back to visit with my fiancé. When he requested Mexican for lunch I took him to this San Jose location. The restaurant didn't seem to have any sort of lunch rush going on so we were seated quickly. The service we received was lacking and we waited a while to get... read more

My Mother and I went to this place one evening while I was in town visiting her, even though I am from the area. We both ordered a Modelo Especial beer and it came with a chilled mug, which was a good touch. Our waiter was friendly and prompt and even though she had initially forgotten some of our large...

Never had a bad meal here and you get such large portions for a great value. I always get the "little of everything combo" and never leave feeling hungry or let down.

Outstanding service, delicious food, and reasonable prices. Something for just about everyone, and even when they are busy the service is prompt. Been many times and never had a bad experience.

Good food, served hot and fast at a reasonable price. Not a "gourmet" meal by any stretch, but hey, it's Mexican, get a grip! Never been disappointed with any meal I've had at any of the locations, and that is more than I can say for any number of local eateries. Try it .. you'll like it!

The food is bland, but the drink prices are good. When you're on a budget it may be cheaper to make the food at home, it might have more flavor.

Favorite restaurant for Mexican/Tex-Mex food in the area. Fast, friendly service. Food is tasty. We try to be weekly regulars. Everything (that we've tried) on menu is good. Great place for typical fare (burritos, enchiladas, tacos, fajitas, tamales, etc.) with offerings including chicken, fish, shrimp, beef, pork. Sweet tea is amazing, by he way. Come hungry!

Once again, we tried to enjoy a meal at this San Jose location, two miles from our home. Wife and I went last night for a quick bite. We ordered a cheese dip and small beef fajitas to share. Cheese dip was luke warm but tasty. The fajitas came out nice and hot. A mid size platter of hot grilled... More
