I read the reviews before going there tonight. All the good reviews are obviously fake. The place is dirty, service was mediocre at best, and the food was not good. This place writes their own reviews to stay in business. Save yourself, don't believe the fake reviews, be smarter than I was and don't eat here.

we visisted this place on our vacation and while I found the portion sizes and the chips and salsa were great the food was not as good as some I have had at other Mexican places. the food was tasty but the cheese sauce that they put on the nachos and some of their entrees tasted a little to much...

My wife & I arrived at 6:15 on a Thursday evening and the restaurant was more than half full. We were seated immediately and waited on within a minute. We ordered a Chori Queso appetizer, which was fantastic - creamy melted cheese with spicy chorizo sausage mixed in. We both ordered fajitas as a main course, and boy were they... More

The food was okay but the service was lousy. The restaurant wasn't busy but we waited quite a while after we were seated before a waitress came to our table. After we got our food the waitress never came back to refill our drinks. Some people that had been seated next to us got tired of waiting and walked out.... More

Good food reasonably priced. Portions are large and complimentary chips and salsa are great. You won't go away hungry.

Walked in around 3p.m stood there a few minutes decided to have a seat since no one came after about 6-8 min we left. Settled on fajitas right up the street the waitress practically met us at the door. Much better experience.
