A family member and I swung in here for lunch one day after a length visit to the medical center earlier that day. We were starving! Their salsas are excellent, and the red salsa isn't too spicy. I ordered the seafood enchiladas and they were delicious. Cheese filled, covered in shrimp and pico de gallo. It was so good! Our... More

The best thing about this restaurant is the staff, very helpful and accommodating. Food was good, not excellent, but good. I like chuy's better, but this is a close second.

I go there at least twice a month. Always fantastic. Chips and veggies always fresh fresh and first class service. Atmosphere good. And let's not forget you get free ice cream. The only problem is I always eat to much. My family likes it do much they had my 50th birthday party there. So do your self a favor and... More

We were pleasantly surprised at the level of personal, warm service given us by the waitstaff. The food met and exceeded our expectations for Tex-Mex. Kedrin gave us good direction on beverages and entrees. We were seated in a quiet back room to enjoy a pleasant personal meal without interruption from screaming children. The sampler plate was just right for... More

Their food is good, the service friendly. I love the free soft serve ice cream cone you can get when you leave. It is a chain and I have only been to two of them, but those have been equally good.

Hey as soon as you walk into this restaurant you know you`ve come to the right place. The food starts off with great tortilla chips and salsa delivered to your table by your friendly server. I`ve had almost every entree there and haven`t found one that I do not enjoy! From the perfectly seasoned "Vera Cruz", with it`s four brochette-style... More

This place has some of the best Mexican I've ever had, and I've had a lot of Mexican. Great service, reasonably priced, good location. I sat at the bar and watched some football with some pretty lively locals and ate the best cheese and onion enchiladas with tamales skins on I've had since forever. When you're on the road go...

Good food and the waiter was great, Chris. We had the fish tacos, presidente and the fajitas for one. You get a lot of food for the money,
