Margarita Swirl was a Treat!

I had a large group for dinner and the waitstaff was quick to find us tables in close proximity. Drinks were amazing, queso was to die for...everyone enjoyed their dinner...its a bit noisy, but most Mexican restaurants are. This restaurant was well worth the visit.

Great Mexican food! The queso with beef added and the guacamole were very good as starters. The chicken with queso was a very good choice for an entree.

We stopped here for lunch after a visit to the Udvar-Hazy Center. It was only a 10 minute drive to Preston Center, and we decided Mexican sounded good. First of all the service was the best. Everyone we talked to were super friendly and attentive. The food was good too. We liked the fact that they made most of their... More

I like the patio and watching the busy streets at the Town Center. I wish it had even more tables.The fajitas are great! But impossible to sit inside as it is too noisy to speak to your friends.

Went in here for a nice little dinner before our movie and man was this place jumping! We were told to get the fajitas here and I can honestly say that these are the best by far I have ever had, and that's saying something because I live in Miami! Come here for a great margarita and some ridiculously good... More

I can't enjoy my food when the noise level is too high. Be prepared for extreme noise during busy hours. Food was OK.

We have been going to this restaurant for years- since way back when it was still called the Rio Grande. It’s always a very busy place, so it is wise to get on the call ahead list. I highly recommend that you start out with The Silversmith Margarita, It has Don Julio Silver, Cointreau, lemon/lime sour. It’s $10.29-- but worth... More
