from looking at the outside of the restaurant I wasn't sure the food would be good but the food was great and the atmosphere was great as well. I went with my wife for lunch and not only was the food full of flavor but the staff was very friendly as well.

Its not the worst but its not the best. The beans are terrible though. Great Ritas and salsa. The service varies on the server.

I know people get used to their favorite so other places don't stack up, but we thought the food was just ordinary. A little garish in the décor. Kind of loud. But staff is always nice and food is prompt and edible. Also I think a little pricey.

The bright colors of the decor inside the restaurant, and your first bites of the salsa and chips, will make you feel as if you are at a fine, Mexican resort! Wait staff was timely (without rushing) and efficient, and delivered delicious, Mexican entrees to our group. The large list of menu options provided a challenge, but each of the... More
