This restaurant was recommended by our hotel staff and many more on Trip Advisor so seven of us tried it. The much vaunted service we read about was unremarkable. We waited at least five minutes after being seated before anyone came to assist us. When our meals arrived we were unimpressed. Several ordered taquitos which gave every indication of having... More

We ate there for dinner as it was close to our hotel. Lots of food and good service. They were busy and we did not have to wait very long for our food.

About once a month I have that need for Mexican food. I search for my friends and relatives to find someone who has my same craving at the corresponding time and away we go. A margarita with warm chips,salsa and sour cream to start the process followed by chicken fajita with rice and beans or a taco salad or enchilada... More

With soooo many open tables. the host tries to stick me right next to a family with a baby carriage that is taking up partially blocking the walking space. This baby could start crying at a moments notice so I refused to sit there. They obliged to... More

They have the best Vegetarian Burritos! Pretty big too. Great tasting. Always am tempted to try something different but always end up getting the Vegetarian Burrito.

Food comes in large servings, hot never cold, waitresses speak english, you are checked on and served very fast. Food is a delight full of taste and restaurant is very authentic! Love going there with my family!

As Mexican/American food is concerned, this was pretty darn good. The salsa fresca was better than the plain salsa though. Our waiter was very attentive and nice (especially since I told him I was learning Spanish and he was more than happy to help me with it. Bonus!) Easy access off the freeway and close to our hotel, so that... More
