Food is good but, the people make the place. They create a enjoyable experience. Good menu of standard Mexican food. Love the margaritas.

Hadn't been to the restaurant in a few years. Tried it when it first open. Wasn't very impressed so just hadn't return. Decided today to try again and wow have we been missing something great. Atmosphere is very nice must can still feel comfortable in a pair of shorts. They brought chips and salsa for starters. Chips were delicious as... More

The food taste was good. It took us a long time to get our food and drinks. The cost seemed a little high for lunch prices. The people were very nice but the wait made it just an average mexican food place.

My wife had the fajitas and I had the Asada tacos. Both of these had the most tender flank steak ever. The table prepared guacamole is a must.the added bonus to our... More

We like the local area restaurant and the wait staff and managers are always friendly and attentive. This is our every Friday night destination if possible. Favorite margaritas and tableside guacamole always on the order! outdoor patio has fans and misters and is again a favorite of ours to relax and unwind.

Let's start with the fact that some of my party LOVED their food while others were on the same page as myself with just average Ted-mex food. The beef brisket taco was a HIT and a must order. The number 11 with sour cream sauce on the lunch menu was also called out pretty tasty. The number 2 lunch special... More

Great place!! Table side guacamole is a must. Salsa is ok but I suggest you request their warm salsa. Punta de pollo is amazing and is on the Thursday lunch special for $7.99. I can make three meals out of one order. We usually go every Thur and split the lunch and order one to go order for our dinner... More
