I've been visiting this restaurant almost since their debut. After all this time, they have consistently served flavorful, fresh and authentic Mexican dishes. My favorite is the Enchiladas Rancheros (grilled pork carnitas, tomato, onion & pepper on top of three stuffed cheese enchiladas), served with refried beans (or Spanish rice), and salad with guacamole. The portions are tremendous (I always... More

We went here our second night in Norfolk, the waiter was the worst we ever had, but the food was exceptional. It was resonably priced and the dishes were huge. We didn't order drinks, but they do have specials. I would recommened this to anyone.

I've eaten from this restaurant twice and wasn't impressed either times. The food is just average, like the service and the ambiance and atmosphere needs an upgrade. Don't waste your time.

Don't ever review but . . .kind of scary. I'm still not sure it was just totally unappetizing and harmless. The bland tomato sauce that covers a multiude of sins on usually my favorites in other Mexican restaurants just made it all that much more unappealing. Just bad food. Greasy chips, Even dark guacamole that wasn't tasty or appetizing even... More

I ordered the Beef Nachos. Not a hard meal to make or mess up. The meat looked and tasted like something I'd serve on spaghetti---not tacos! The salsa was nothing more than tomato sauce from a can. They should be embarrassed to call this Mexican food because this is NOT how we eat it. Mala, mala comida!!Que verguenza!

The menu seems like nearly every other Mexican restaurant in town but I like this one better. The wait staff are attentive. The building appears to be a former chain location. Perhaps its something in the seasoning or that the wait staff appear authentic.

The food is excellent. Cheep. Consistant. The chips are the best I've had including the ones in San Diego. Portions are large and prices are excellent. Our family loves to go there when they visit.. Service is always good. Not a place if you want atmosphere, but great if you want great Mexican food.

I would rather kill my first born child than eat here again. The service was laughable(it rather reminded me of a kitchen nightmare episode) at best. Food was trash! The rice was soggy and our Fried Chimmis tasted of elephant dung. Don't eat here! Your life is in danger if you do!

This is our favourite Mexican restaurant. My wife and I go there often. We are greeted courteously and with respect. The food is inexpensive and tasty. In fact, even though they send coupons in the mail, my wife will not let me use them because she is afraid they will lose money and go out of business. Their frozen margaritas... More
