Ok...now wait, I was taken there on a Sunday to help consume their buffet. OK now thats what I'm talking about! I have always said the... More

I ordered the fiesta taco special and believe me, it was no fiesta. I couldn't find the meat in all the pico de gallo. Jalisco shrimp appetizer was... More

Definitely a great place for dinner and some drinks if you're up for it. Margaritas are amazing, staff is very nice. You can eat at the bar, dining room or the patio are they have which has a very nice set up.

A nice family oriented restaurant. We enjoy the food and the mariachis. Live music in the weekend is the spot light . Love the carnitas plate and my kids the flautas. The margaritas are a hit .

Raised in El Paso I always eat here when I return home. Always busy on week nights it is real busy on weekends-expect to wait. Food is terrific, service is great and the margaritas are unbeatable!! Atmosphere is authentic and dining areas are broken up so you feel comfortable. Great place to eat, drink and enjoy live music!!
