Great food--if you know what to order!

This place can be hit and miss if you don't know what to order. So, I hope I can give you some good recommendations. First, I would like to suggest coming at an off-hour, between lunch and dinner times so you can avoid the weekend crowds. The chips and salsa are the best here! If that is not... read more

This is our go-to Mexican food restaurant. The seafood dishes are great, but then, everything we've eaten here is great.

Had not been in for a few months, went in & waitress remembered us & our drink orders! Food is always very good (love their chimi and fajitas), service is always efficient and their chips, salsa & beans are awesome!

I found all aspects of this restaurant mediocre at best. The place itself was unimpressive - old and not particularly clean. The service was friendly, but not attentive. The food was edible but not very special. Overall it was just average Mexican. Chips were warm but tasteless. I liked the fact that they served re-fried beans along with their salsa.... More

We were really in the mood for some good Mexican food and ended up being bit disappointed with this restaurant. As has been said in other reviews, the ambiance is not all that great, but was of little consequence to us since what we really wanted was good food. The portions were large, but we didn't care for the flavor... More

We had a coupon card and this was one of the restaurants that gave a buy one, get one free deal. I ordered the Burrito Guadalajara, and my wife got the Taco Salad with ground beef. The burrito had three options--beef, chicken, or shrimp. I chose shrimp. The burrito was kind of pasty and average. It was huge though. My... More

While the main reason people come here is for their Carne Asada plate, there are some other great choices on their menu! This past week, I ventured out from my typical Shredded Beef Tostada and got their crispy taquitos--one chicken and one shredded beef and they were delicious! Will definitely get that again--it would make a great appetizer! Yummy! My... More

My husband and I ate here this past Friday. We were seated quickly and our server approached immediately to take our drink order. Chips, salsa, and bean dip appeared as we waited for our drinks. When the drinks arrived we were ready to order. I got the combo of shredded beef chimichanga and chile relleno; hubby got two smothered chicken... More

My husband and I have been coming to this location for a long time. It took us a while to figure out what that "one dish" was for each of us that would bring us back week after week. We have tried various items on their menu and haven't been thrilled with all of them, but since we have each... More
