“Not as good as years ago”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Chips are thin and warm - always good.
Salsa is changed slightly - not as good.
Bacon wrapped shrimp extremely over cooked.
Fajitas great.

“good mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Upscale building, fun atmosphere. They made a reservation for 20 of us on Valentines day. Food was good and as a side note - you can order the luncheon menu in the evening if you are a senior. The mexican pizza was very good.

“Nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The food here was fine but nothing special. Have had better margaritas, chips and salsa elsewhere. Cheese enchiladas, refried beans and rice were good but standard mexican chain fare. Very busy, popular place so go early.
