After just having walked out of another restaurant due to problems, this one was a relief. It looked and smelled clean. We had the Fajitas Luis - my new favorite! And the serving size was generous; there was enough for my wife and I to split plus we brought some home. We didn't have any problems with service.

The services is usually great, but once out of many times it was not. The salsa is great. Love the green salsa and the warm red salsa. Chips are good when they are hot.

Warm salsa is thick and chunky. Ask for the complimentary green sauce too. One of my favorite dishes is the tamales; they are large! Friendly service and daily specials make this a go-to restaurant for us.

Good food, nice atmosphere and their top shelf margaritas are some of the best in town. It a great place for a group of people or for a couple. The staff is friendly and go out of there way to make sure everything is on the up and up.

On a recent visit we found the food to be very good and and the service excellent. Though it was very noisy we could have a decent conversation. The noise level wasn't the fault of the restaurant, but of parents who wouldn't remove their screaming toddler.

Best tableside guacamole anywhere! The margaritas are large and not watered-down one iota. The Fajitas Luis for one is large enough for two, and an incredible value - beef, shrimp and mushrooms along with the regular veggies - delicious! I haven't found anything on the menu that isn't excellent and we eat here sometimes 3 times a week.
