I went with my sister in law here with her co workers. I was disappointed in the food and service. I love Mexican food and this made me sick. It was awful how can someone really mess up a burrito! Nothing was good but the chips. I would not go there ever again.

Lost their lease and MOVING to 12835 Jefferson Ave (former Steve & John's Steak House). Hope they can maintain the service at the new location.

A large group of us went for dinner and received good service and good food. The menu is large with the typical Mexican choices. Atmosphere was good and is a good place for families, as we had several children with us. Would go back if ever again in the area.

The guacamole was freshly made to order and was excellent. We enjoyed our fajitas but they were average. Service was good. I would return, but would just order the guacamole and chips.

Food was good and my margarita was slamming. Had a nice time with a group of friends. The shrimp tostada was a good appetizer .
