“Terrific Mexican food; great waitstaff; great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

Some of our local friends recommend we eat here, while we were on vacation. Boy were they right. The number of choices was excellent, the food was delicious, the waitstaff was on-the-ball, and the price was excellent.

I would definitely eat here again.

“Best Mexican food I've ever eaten in a restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

I have been to both locations and the service and food were consistently good both places. The menu is varied and offers great choice for a reasonable price. We went on Wed. when they offer 99 cent margaritas which were very good and not "watered down". The wait staff is courteous and attentive and prompt to fulfill our needs. I have eaten in many other "good" Mexican restaurants from AZ, CA to AK and this establishment is the best. I highly recommend it and will go again and again.

“Good food - poor service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Met a couple there tonight to play catch up and the atmosphere was great. Location is a little tricky as it sits in a plaza surrounded by divided roads. Regardless, we arrived and they were already there. The waiter came over immediately to ask what we wanted. We ordered our drinks, however, I at expected a glass of water also. The waiter asked for our order and we said we didn't even have a chance to look at menus and we would let him know. 10 mins later he is back again. He tried to rush us in our order, eating and rush us out it was obvious because he never came back to even see if we wanted more drinks. Had he he might have gotten a bigger tip. Food was good.

“Great Mexican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Four of us went there last night and had one of the best meals we've had in a long time. The waiter was great! We asked him about some of their dishes and he was knowledgable about them and even recommended some. Service was great, meals hot and brought out pretty fast, prices were good. You couldn't ask for more from a restaurant.
