Good Mexican breakfast

We stopped here after the 1st place we wanted to go to was closed. The food was good and service was good considering there was only 1 server.

Been here twice now. Once six years ago and then again in 2015. Great food. Hasn't changed. The Mahi Mahi fish tacos are amazing. Such great staff and service. Will be back. Love it.

Nothing special about this restaurant. The food was very average. Cost was okay, but not cheap. The chips and salsa weren't even very good.

We went here the first time and we're impressed with margaritas and fajitas, which prompted us to return but we were so displeased by the food and service the second time around. Was not a fan of the burritos and the server had a bad attitude along with seeming like he was a bit disconnected with serving us and was... More

Great Mexican restaurant. Stopped for a drink one afternoon and discovered happy hour runs 2-6 on week days. Then wet back on the weekend for a meal. Plenty to eat. Excellent food. Extensive menu to choose from.

They try real hard, however we may have come on a night when they were short staffed. The service was slow, and I had the combo plate, and was pretty bland and no real spice. I did try them for breakfast, and their service was good and their food was much better.

Lively music , attentive service and fantastic margaritas. We both had chimichangas and they were flavorful and full of meat. The starting chips and salsa were warm and we had to get more salsa as it was so good. Prices comparable to Chicago.

I ordered the shrimp and beef fajitas and it was extremely tender - onion rue was excellent. The complimentary chips were fresh made and delicious. Salsa was a little thin for me but generally mild and very good. The shrimp burrito was a sleeping bag for shrimp haha it was very yummy. The $4 house margarita was way too sour... More
