Cheesy and cheap

I stopped here on the way to skyline drive. I honestly wasn't expecting it to be good but it blew me away. The prices are very cheap, especially for the lunch specials. My meal was overly cheesy but you can't go wrong with cheese. The servers were very attentive and kind. If you're looking for... read more

Very average Tex Mex food with generous Margaritas. Good guacamole and convenient location. Outside terrace is unpleasant since it is alongside busy road.

I have tried this restaurant twice. I thought maybe the first time we went, they just had an off day, even though we asked for some flour tortilla, something to snack on until we order our food. and they never came back to take our order just gave us a bill for the tortillas, so we tried it again. the...

My wife and I like to eat here because everything we've tried from the menu has been good Mexican food. It is consistent from one visit to the next. Last night I got one of my favorites, Chili Verde. The pork was fall apart good. There are little details I enjoy, the heated chips with the slaw. Another waiter noticed... More

Have been here several times, first review. Was traveling with three friends and stopped in for lunch. The waiter was very accommodating specially we were riding motorcycles and it had been raining all day and we were wet. He said don't worry about it. We all ordered a variety of entrees and all of them were very good. The service... More

Not sure why the service has gotten so bad. Last few times we were there it seems to have gone down hill as far as service and cleanliness.

Stopped by about 4:30 today. Hostess was just flirting with two men as she counted their change. I asked if I could just go to the bar and she "be with you in a minute". The restaurant tables were all dirty, nothing had been bused from lunch, and no one was in the bar or restaurant. No waiters, bartenders, staff... More

We loved the food but the decor needs work. We were very surprised about the food quality. The food was hot and fresh and we were impressed. We wish the place was a little cleaner and updated. Don't get me wrong.....it's fine but if they got some new tables and chairs, pictures etc. This place would be great!!!!! Our server... More

Stopped by with family and got 4 of the #8 lunch specials. Food was excellent and the total bill came to about $20. Which was a great value. Now the bad.. The waiter, not sure of his name, but white male with buzz cut, blonde hair. He took our order and dropped off the food and that was about the... More

If you are looking for a great Mexican meal at a great price, this place is what you need. The food is amazing and there is plenty of it. The one weird thing, they give you coleslaw for your chips and salsa. The atmosphere is relaxed. The service here could have been faster, but the servers were working hard and... More
