We have been coming here for years and years. Menu changed again, prices have gone up. $10 for a margarita?? This used to be a good family place to come for decent tex-mex food, but now it is getting more expensive. The chicken enchiladas, which I have had for years, came out on a giant white plate with no lettuce,... More

I had dinner there and dirnks and the food is always so good. Also drop by one night and they were closing, but they stayed and service my wife and i. They didn't rush us and they were so accommodating to our needs even thought they were closing up. We didn't feel stress to leave and kept asking them it... More

If you're looking for truly authentic Mexican food this is not it, but this is really good American-ish Mexican food what is really what most people want isn't it? Good flavor, big portions, servers are very nice, fun atmosphere, festive decor! Great place to go for lunch, dinner, with kids, birthday. If you want to be in a good mood... More

I had dinner here one night. The food was really tasty and there was plenty of it. So much in fact that I couldn't finish it all. The staff were friendly and the atmosphere was nice. I think I paid around $30 for a main and a beer after tip.

I am a big fan of authentic Mexican flavors so the food was Ok for me, not bad but not great. But they did had a great selection of cocktails and margaritas. Service was good, place gets too crowded in the evenings so call ahead of time and have your name on the wait list.

I wish I could tell you about the food but the service was so bad I left. I sat at the bar because I was alone, I ordered a drink asked for the menu and waited 20 minutes and nobody asked for my food order. The bartender knew I wanted to eat because I asked him if it I could... More

Big portions of deliciousness arrived with my fajita combination lunch special. Juicy chicken and savory beef paired with fresh roasted veggies and warm soft tortillas, what more can you ask for. The wait staff was attentive and the ambiance enjoyable. Will definitely be back, but almost $12 for table side guacamole is robbery.

I am not a fan of Mexican food, but I have to admit that this place's food was to die for! Their food was tasty and fresh. One plate is enough for two people. The price is also reasonable! Great mojitos too! I couldn't have guacamole, but they brought me a good portion of avocado. They make their own flour... More
