This used to be a sleepy tanqueria with a reasonable priced menu with the standards for Mexican fare. Mariachis used to play one night a week. I guess they are trying to expand their market and so the menu is much larger now, prices have gone up, and they have tequilia tastings weekly. We were sad (for us, but happy for them) to see our neighborhood local go kind of corporate. They have live music most nights (at least the times we were there), but it is WAY too loud and detracts from the dining experience. The Fajitas are what to go here for. They used to be more generous in the past (before the reinvigoration) and one order could easily serve two. Now one person can handily consume an entire fajita order. We joke that this used to be George Bush's favorite Mexican (W's) because he actually came and ate here when he was president. The fajitas are great and the meat is tasty and comes on a sizzling metal plate.
