Very Good Food with Great Service

We ate at the restaurant on Thursday night April 23rd. It was highly recommended by some of the locals, and definitely did not disappoint. There was a very good crowd (especially for a Thursday). We were seated quickly and our waiter was very good and helpful. I had enchiladas and they were... read more

Good was good - kind of small portion for the entree, but reasonable. Service was awful - there were only a couple of tables occupied, but we had to flag down another server to get refills. When our server did stop by, he only brought one of the refills we requested. We had to wait 15 minutes after we finished... More

Very good Mexican food at a fair price. I love their guacamole. I have never had bad food there. It is excellent for those days when you are just craving Mexican food. Excellent fajitas and margaritas.

We wanted to try all the Mexican places in the area to compare them to our favorite and we were disappointed with this place. The tacos were stale, the server seemed like we were bothering him, the salsa lacked flavor and the cheese was not the white american that I've come to love over the last 25+ years. A lot... More

This little restaurant was a great find! We knew it would be good just by the local crowds that were there. The food was very good and the service was excellent! A great place if you are traveling up I-24!

My family has eaten here on two or three occasions and I see nothing special. The salsa is not good at all. This place is nice but like I say, nothing special.

Had drinks & supper here on a Friday night--really tasty/spicy fish tacos! Also enjoyed the enchiladas and some southwestern "eggrolls". Service was prompt & friendly. Nice place!

Nothing to write home about. Guac was pretty smooth, I prefer more chunks. Prices were steep. Both kids and myself had one item off the ala cart menu and my husband had a meal and it still came to $50! Not sure how.
