The food is far from Mexican. The salsa was good. Guacamole had good flavor, but was chunky like they were to lazy to cut it up. The food was okay, just weird. Beans weren't really refried, and rice was a joke. Mine tasted sweet with nothing that resembled Mexican flavor. Expensive too. Queso was good.

The food is always good with nice portions. The service was a little slow. I was starting to rethink my tip amount when I was waiting for our to go box.

Good Mexican restaurant chain. Good value if you are a traveler on a business budget. All you can eat tacos for $8.99 and great Happy Hour specials.

Our group of four arrived at 12:30pm. Since one of my friends has a bad knee, we asked to sit at a table. All of the tables had been pushed together for larger groups of 8-12. At one of the tables of 12, there were only three people. At 1:15, the rest of their party had not arrived and we... More

Had a very friendly waitress who kept our drinks refreshed and the chip basket full. She even asked us if we wanted drinks to go, which was very nice! Food was tasty too.

Walked for our hotel for dinner on a very cold night. Seems everything was running rather slow. Took awhile for the waiter to come to out table, food took way too long, and food wasn't anything to get excited about. Drink refills were hard to come by.

The chicken salsa fresca arrived without fanfare 15 min after we ordered, but my wife's was basically raw on one end, so OK, send it back. But after 8-10 minutes waiting for the waiter to return we snagged another waiter and was told it'll only take a second for this to be re cooked. Ten minutes pass and the original... More
