Have been a few times. This food is good and well priced for family dinners. The staff are ok most the time. But they never seem to understand when someone is in a rush to leave. It takes a long time to get the check once asked for. And longer time for them to pick up and run a card.

I stopped in for one of the numerous $6.75 lunch specials. I picked the Enchiladas Supreme. It had one cheese and one chicken enchilada with sour cream. It came with lettuce and sour cream. There were wonderful salsa and chips. Service was excellent. Food was good. Decor was festive.

I went here first time with friends and really did not know what to order but my friends helped me. I will say the food was good and hot. Not spicy hot. The place was very clean and nicely decorated. We also enjoy having the flan for desert. I will tell others to come here for real Mexican foods.

I come here regularly and for good reason. Delicious food at prices that make it easy to fill up. Love their chips and salsa as well as the queso dip! Forgot the others in the area this is the better choice.

If you are from the north you'll think this tastes fine because a lot of people around here seem to. If you're from Texas or New Mexico you're wasting your time even trying it. All of the food tastes exactly the same, like they use the same seasoning on everything they cook. It's exceptionally mediocre.

A quick overnight while traveling the East coast, and this restaurant was one driveway away from our hotel. How nice it was to see that it was so highly rated on Tripadvisor. This restaurant did not disappoint. Margaritas in 3 sizes, delicious with no chemical flavor. Meals were an excellent value and very tasty. The salsa was one of the... More
