Good Food and Great with Kids

Three adults and three young men went to eat Mexican after being in the rain at the Dragon Boat races. Our waiter was terrific with the young ones. We enjoyed drinks and a selection from the menu. Would definitely go back.

The service was friendly and the restaurant was clean. Free chips and salsa! Drinks were half price if you came early. Portions so big you would not go away hungry and the... More

When we called the phone was answered "Yeah" that should have been the first clue. Service was horrible and they got our takeout order wrong not once but twice & we had to go back to get what we ordered. The manager was very arrogant and not very respectful and the ladies at the host stand was very snooty! If... More

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.

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
