“Fajitas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The homemade salsa has a bit of a kick ... goes well with the fresh tortilla chips ... and they're complimentary!

We had the fajitas for two. Very good value. Lots of food (quantity) -- we had leftovers for lunch the next day.

“Impressive take on traditional Mexican cuisine.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Having returned from New Mexico where the food delivered was exceptional, this restaurant also gives a very good take on traditional Mexican cuisine.
Very varied menu delivered with enthusiasm from the servers who will spend an age talking about the menu. They do really work hard and deserve their gratuity. The Tacos are excellent. Do try and enjoy.

“Fresh Food and Great Margaritas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

We recently moved to the area and are exploring lots of local restaurants - and this is one we will definitly revisit and bring friends! The service was very fast and friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu with great recommendations. Food was very fresh and tasty, and the margaritas were the perfect topper! Value was pretty good also.
