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.

I miss my TexMex foods in TX, but this came very close to what I am more used to in this part of the oountry than any other. I would recommend it to all who love Mexican with great choices.

I travel for business almost every week of the year and eat almost exclusively at locally owned restaurants everywhere I go. Mexican food is always a high priority each day. With that said, this was one of the best Mexican dishes I've had in a long time. That is the good news. The bad news is that I can't remember... More
