This is by far the best Mexican food we've ever had. Great chips and salsa, great service and outstanding food. I have never had a bad meal here! Anytime we crave delicious Mexican dinner this is the only restaurant we choose..

Great food combined with great service makes for an excellent dining experience. The complimentary salsa and chips are a great start. They serve two salsas; one a little spicier than the other, but both good. My favorite dish is their "Jealous Rooster." Strips of chicken in a spicy mix with mushrooms and onions. Along with a Corona, makes for a... More

We have ate a late lunch here several times. The service has always been prompt and attentive. There were few diners present during our visits. The portions have always been generous, tasty, and reasonably priced. The menu has the standard expected fare available as well as cocktails. There is limited off street parking available. We will dine here again.

Very crowded on a Friday night, and it stayed that way. But service was prompt, drinks were good, dishes were delicious! We had beef fajitas and chicken mole. Very good!

We've tried this place a few times but never really found anything to make us want to return in the near future. The staff are friendly, but very loud. It's a nice idea to provide a variety of salsas, but they don't taste any better than what you get in a jar at the grocery store. The dishes we've tried... More

This is among our very favorite Mexican style restaurants anywhere. One of the first places we go after being out of town. They serve an excellent salsa and chips. The menu has a lot to select from. My personal favorite is their "Jealous Rooster"...a spicy chicken dish with character. They have a reasonable selection of Mexican beer as well as... More
