Service is sketchy

I enjoy the food, and the margaritas here very much which is why I continue to go back. However, for the most part, the service has been terrible even when they are not busy.

My friends and I had a horrid experience recently from start to finish. While the food was ok (JUST ok), that was the ONLY part of our visit, other than our nice, apologetic but very new waitress, who seemed as appalled as we were as our dinner unfolded. We arrived at 7 and spotted an outdoor table on the patio... More

Went on a Sat for a early dinner so it wasn't very crowed yet. Very good themed décor. Our waitress, Shari was very attentive. The BBQ Chicken Burrito was HUGE... They have a decent selection of menu items to keep you happy.

Had great margaritas and quesadillas. Waitress Lily was awful. Basically was annoyed that my friend aajes what pico de gallo was. She said well I don't know how to explain it to you any better than what's on the menu. You don't know what it is?? Well obviously not if she's asking you. Then I ordered a second drink, had...

First let me start off by rating ZERO stars for this place. They are not worthy of 1 star. I have eaten at this restaurant 3 times and I must say each time progressively got worse. I'd like to speak about my most recent experience--I went to celebrate my 25th birthday on Friday 2/20/15 at 7pm with a group of... More

Very cool, authentic Mexican restaurant! Food at a great price. Service isn't too bad but could have been a little better. The food is of great quality, burritos are huge! Price is good for the amount of food you get. I'd say it's pretty cheap for most Mexican restaurants I've been too. Def the best Mexican food I've had in... More

Love the atmosphere here. Use to come with my sister when she lived down the block. The place is reasonable price. The drink specials were good but daily prices were average. I recommend it to my friends that travel through the area. This is a must try.

I had lunch with a friend here and the food was good and the ambiance is interesting. Food tasted good and service was good. The only problem you will have is parking. The restaurant is located in a busy residential neighborhood. The parking spots are not metered, but they are limited to two hours. I'm just thinking that you may... More

like the decor, the cleanliness, the menu...don't like the fact that almost every time i go here the serving staff changes...the bar person was here the last few times, but she is really not friendly, maybe a little stressed...
