Yummy!

Great food and service. I like that you can seat yourself and still get noticed and served quickly. The staff is friendly and constantly making sure the tables and restaurant are clean. The food is always tasty too.

I got the carne asada tacos & the meat looked like dog food from a can. Very bland. The refried beans tasted like paste and the pico was good until I found what looked like a thin, moldy piece for straw. The best thing here was the salsa after adding the habenero sauce to it. The mango margarita was way... More

This is our go to restaurant when we are in the mood for Mexican food. The staff is very friendly and the food is so good. Prices are reasonable especially if you have a family to feed.

My son just returned from deployment and wanted Mexican. Searched the general area and made this pick. Being from Denver we have a different idea of Mexican. The food was good and the service was great but definetely did not have the flavors that we are used to. Not much spice but plenty to eat.

The service is outstanding! The food is very good and they have many things to choose from, more than the average restaurant. Great bar, reasonable prices, we always have a great time here!

I've been to an El Azteca in Atlanta, Georgia, and it was the best Mexican food I've ever had. I decided to check out this one, expecting the same great food and atmosphere. I was not impressed, in fact, a little disappointed. Both the food and the atmosphere were pretty average; nothing spectacular. The salsa had a great flavor, but... More

We found this place when looking for somewhere to eat around the hotel. Prices were very reasonable, portions were good sized and the service was good. Worth a stop if you are in the area

We have tried several Mexican restaurants in our local area and this is our preferred. The music is authentic, the staff is prompt, large servings, reasonable prices, large booths, usually no waiting, family friendly.... not to mention the superb frozen margaritas! Never to noisy to talk, extremely clean and well managed. Our favorite Mex in Virginia Beach.

My fiancé visits this place quite frequently. This was my first time here and it was a pleasant surprise. I normally don't care for Mexican restaurants, but this place appeared clean and the food is cooked and served at lightening speed. The prices are right and the wait staff are friendly and fun. Great little find, don't overlook it!

We ordered takeout. The quantity was ample, and quality was very good. The nacho supreme was odd in the fact that it had to be assembled, but it was never the less very good.
