“Bad place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011 via mobile

This restaurant sucks!!!!! WITH A CAPITAL SSS. My wife and I always wanted to go here because the place look pretty nice from the outside so tuesday nite we decided to give it a try big mistake. The salsa and chip tasted old we made the mistake of ordering guacamole tasted bitter and old we never leave guacamole this time we did. I order the shrimp and steak SIZZILING fajitas when it cames it was not even hot and the meat taste old and with no taste. Anyways this place is really bad!!!!

“A Longtime Favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2011

You know you are at home when you know the menu by heart. After 25 years, a major remodel and update in decor this is the default Mexican restaurant for me and my sweetie. The fresh chips and two types of salsa appear before you even order. The green enchiladas, chile rellenos, chile verde, chimichungas, taco salads, etc., never disappoint. They even have Coca-Cola hecho in Mexico along with a full bar and wine list. Prices are reasonable.
