Our tennis team had another delicious meal after a tough day of play in high heat and humidity. While they weren't set-up for large groups, they did make arrangements for our group of 12 right in the heart of the restaurant. Our server was very conscientious and explained menus to those who needed more information. The prices were reasonable and... More

Visited for a Friday night dinner while staying at the Marriot City center. Decided to sit outside in small area on sidewalk since wonderful weather and nice breeze. Enjoyed watching all the people visiting City Center for Friday music by the Fountain. Initially after being seated we waited for around ten minutes and nobody came to take our order. Usually...

My son and were visiting City center and I had a coupon so hey. Service was good, we didn't have to wait long at all. I ordered the carne asada because I'm from San Diego (the best carne asada on the planet!). My steak was tender and my tortillas warm. The guacamole salad complemented the dish well, I just wanted...

There are so man Mexican options around so its often hard to choose which one to go to. Each one has its pros and cons, but this is one is your typical spot. I like the atmosphere at this location, but the food is average at best. The salsa is actually pretty good, but the remainder of the food is... More

I had a quick lunch here with a couple of co-workers. I was impressed with the choices and quality of the lunches. The service was also very fast.

My wife and I went here for dinner here and the food and service were horrible. The resteraunt was not busy, we ate at 6pm because we were attending a show later so we thought getting in early would be fine. The waiter never said hello or welcome, took our drink and appetizer order, drinks came quickly but after ten... More

We ate on a Thursday night, no wait for a table. Food was good and came to the table quickly. The drinks were excellent and I thought prices were reasonable for the area. It was karaoke night so the place was a little loud but they did seat us away from the noise.

I came here with a group of friends for dinner. We were seated immediately. The waitress took our order and the meals came out quite fast. Coming from New Mexico, I was looking for something with more southwestern taste. I didn't get that. Food was a definite Tex-Mex with a flare. I ordered tamale, chorizo and chimichanga. The food was... More

I have never had a bad experience at a Mexican restaurant until this place. The food was just not up to par. Something about their red sauce made everything taste funny. I won't go back.

The margaritas here are very tasty. Food portions are a bit small on the combination platter menu but the food did arrive piping hot. Service, although SLOW, was friendly. I won't be rushing back but I won't remove it from the list either.
