Delicious Fajitas

We got the mixed fajitas for two-it was enough for three people. They actually bring you enough tortillas to begin with so you don't have to ask for more. They kept our drink glasses filled without having to wave them down. Service was excellent!

My boyfriend described the chips and salsa here as "perfectly fine," and that pretty much sums up the whole restaurant. We stopped on our way to Dallas to get a quick bite, and quick it was! Very fast, friendly service. My boyfriend ordered the shrimp enchiladas with poblano cream sauce, but what he got tasted exactly like Alfredo sauce. Not... More

I read all the reviews and still decided to go. He food and service was extremely great! In order the chicken enchiladas which we're tasty. I highly recommend getting them. Also the restaurant had a ton of people eating. Overall if I am in the area I will be back.

This was the worst excuse for Mexican food. My child had the Pony Plate (tamale) and it was the kind from the can with the paper wrapper. The tortillas are pre-packaged kind. Don't waste your money ordering their 'chili con queso'. You can buy it at any grocery store deli section. Just add in your favorite salsa. It will probably... More

the food was very delicious, service was good and the atmosphere was good as well and they have non Mexican items on the menu, for the one in your group that just doesn't want it. :)

The chips y salsa was good and the food was OK. The service we received was quick and attentive though. She helped with all the requests that my children had on their dishes. The big beer I got was freezer cold and GREAT!

Excellent Mexican food at a very reasonable price. The location is just off I-35 South with an easy off/easy on accessibility ramp.

Women like the professional decor and nice atmosphere, but don't expect to enjoy if you want spicy or otherwise tasty food. Little old ladies that hate spices love it though. Bland, tasteless, beans might be made out of play-doh. This El Conquistador would win a contest for the worst chile relleno in the world. I literally can't think of any... More
