When the Holiday Inn Express staff recommended the Mexican restaurant next door in the Days Inn as the "best one around", we were skeptical. But it was easy walking distance from the hotel and we were tired of driving, so we walked across the parking lot and entered. What a nice place inside! While it's decorated in Mexican kitsch, it...

I have been to many similar Mexican restaurants. As the heading of states, the food and service was just that, So So. Even the "Top Shelf" margarita was about the same. If your looking for average Mexican food at an average price, you won't be disappointed here.

The margarita was the way to start, of course.... but when the steak fajita showed up at my table just a crackling away it was music to my ears and an explosion to my taste buds.The "wait staff" was also the BEST I've experience at a Mexican restaurant. What a treat!!! I will be back to try something different since... More

Outstanding Mexican food. My wife claims "best fajitas, ever." The margaritas need a new recipe. We consumed our food in the bar as all restaurant seating was occupied. We will return

Had the burrito supreme (beef). Nice spicy taste to the meet. Although the burrito was not overly large, the complement of rice and beans was filling. All flavors and textures were very enjoyable. Good chips and salsa

I love everything from the atmosphere, chips, salsa, queso, and drinks. The staff is very friendly. They provide great customer service and Mexican food. I must recommend the pollo enquesado. It is delicious. I have been here several times and haven't had a bad experience.

This has become our "go to" for that authentic Mexican feeling restaurant...the atmosphere is quirky and the food is great. The margaritas are not the store bought mixes you get at some places...these are the best around. The staff remember you and greet you with a smile and an 'hola' We love it.
