The Seafood Chimichanga Is the Bomb

I very much dislike paying extra for condiments. I feel very strongly that those things should be free with your meal.

I have to say that this place was downright disgusting. I have never had worse Mexican food anywhere else. Beans were watery and the salsa was bland. They were not very busy when we went but the service was slow and not very friendly. If you are looking for authentic Mexican or even a decent meal, you would do best... More

Terrible salsa. Terrible chicken enchilada. So so shredded beef taco. The Spanish rice tasted like it was made with spaghetti o's sauce. The beans tasted good. I'm from So Cal and this is not Mexican food.

If you like microwaved frozen "Mexican" food you will enjoy this place. The prep is fast so if you are in a hurry and not too paticular it might work for you.

Basic Mexican fare. Nothing fancy but a good place to sit down with family. Good service. Dining area is nice. Has a party room.

The food is OK but not what I'd describe as authentic Mexican fare. The dishes seem to be more like American versions of Mexican food, probably would suit the faint hearted who are hesitant to try something new or too spicy.

Comfortable and attractive atmosphere. Freindly and prompt servers. Food was great. Tortilla chips and various hot sauces at different levels of hottness were available.

The chips and salsa are about the only edible thing at this place. It has the atmosphere and title of a mexican restaurant, the prices of a steakhouse for what you get and the food quality of a McDonalds. The service is usually shaky as well.

A white person's take on Mexican food. Not bad, but not authentic. The staff was very friendly however, and the price was good for what we got.
