Amazing Mexican food and fun atmosphere

I took a date here for Valentines Day and it was a truly wonderful experience. The waitresses were there to get what we needed quickly despite the insane amounts of people that were there, and they were so polite.

We tried this restaurant tonight after reading the majority of reviews saying good things. We ordered fajitas. The portion was nice, except they give you a tiny spoon full of guacamole and sour cream. The meat was flavorless, although the peppers and onions were cooked well. The beans tasted like baby food, no flavor at all! Apparently when we mentioned... More

Don't get me wrong; the food is delicious. However, since I started going here it had declined in unique taste and is more and more like a chain-style food. I only say this since I have had to wait to get extremely fresh tasting food, but nowadays it seems like it comes from a hot lamp and a buffet assembly... More

This is the best Mexican restaurant around. They have the best chicken fajitas I've ever had! If you order it be prepared to share because the fajitas are huge. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it...

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in the area. We always have been very impressed by the friendliness of the waiters and the quality and portion size - great value for the price.

This is really great Mexican food. The service was really quick. Lots of food for the money. This is a family owned restaurant so you get good family service.

I love this place for Mexican food! I've been there several times and it's always been good. Sometimes the service is a bit slow however on our latest visit they were very busy due to a special event in the area and the service was great. We were seated quickly and received our food in a timely manner. As mentioned... More

Three of us split the molcajete bowl filled with delicious but slightly overcooked spiced meats, shrimp, and chilies, and we still took home a take out box! The service was so warm and generous, with Maria herself taking out order. Inside was a little too warm that evening, so we sat outside, but the interior is nicely decorated in a... More

Too much salt & too much food. My teenager barely ate due to salt content. After scraping the 1/2 pound of cheese off the top, my food was tasty, except for the salt content. Service was almost nonexistent. After receiving our food, never had another person approach us.

I have eaten at this place at least seven times and usually the food is OK but I'm so disgusted now that I will never return. I ordered the chile verde burrito which I had previously and thought it was pretty good so I ordered it again. As I ate it I had to spit out several pieces of fat... More
