Our service had a very nice disposition, but it took forever to get waited on and get the food. The place was not crowded at all, so I have no idea what the holdup was. The food is OK and the prices reasonable.

This was a fairly average, large Tex-Mex style restaurant. Our meals were fine, but nothing to write home about. We got there on the early side, and when we left (maybe 7 ish?) there was a crowd at the front and some folks waiting. I think they had certain drink specials that night so that probably attracts quite a few... More

My co-worker and I took a VIP friend of ours (photographer to Beyonce, Chaka Khan and many others) to the $2 Taco Tuesdays. We waited 30 minutes for food and called the manager to see what was going on. He came back and told us that the kitchen lost our ticket and apologized. So...we waited another 10 minutes for the...

The fajitas were the best ever! For those of you with small children, you'll probably want to sit downstairs (it's 2-story). If you're wanting a small, romantic dinner, the second floor is quiet. Ask for Denise for the best service with a smile! We'll definitely go back.

From the moment me and friends got here for a birthday dinner I wasn't impressed. It all started when our server first took forever to refill drinks... That was strike #1. I get it, things get busy so it happens.I was like eh, ok I'll let that go till it kept happening over and over. Later on, everyone starts to... More

I have been to this place a lot! Especially for Taco Tuesday. Last year when the had the $1 special on chicken, beef, or veggie tacos, my friends and I were there every Tuesday. I guess I'm a cheap date because I loved the house margaritas also. All my friends would get the frozen swirl (Sangria and Margarita swirl), they... More

We have been here on a couple of occasions recently. The service is just poor. The wait staff acts like they are doing you a favor to wait on you. We had to ask multiple times for a refill on chips and salsa. The first time they never came back after they dropped the food off until we asked for... More

Well decorated décor inside and out. We were able to dine outside but have dined inside on a previous visit. The weather was perfect and the food is not your typical Mexican food. I had a steak with appetizers and it was excellent. Fun atmosphere and this location is right at the Buckhead area.

I joined a couple clients at this restaurant since we were looking for something close and casual. The service was a mess. We ordered a large guacamole appetizer but it never arrived. We asked twice about it and were told it was on the way. We never got it. Our drinks sat empty for prolonged periods. We sat outside since... More
