“Nice quick lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

Went with a business group of 15 for lunch. The host worked quickly and seated us together although we said we would sit at separate tables. Several ordered fajitas and split the order. There was way more food than for one person for a lunch. I ordered a la cart and was pleasantly surprised with the cheese enchiladas, basic comfort food flavor. I grew up in NM and love a good cheese enchilada w/a basic mild red sauce and onions. Chips were fresh as were the tortillas. The waitress was very efficient and was not ruffled by separate checks or the size of the party. She came out ahead on the tips even though there was an added gratuity of 15% for such a large party. I would love to explore the other menu options, lots of different type of regional dishes to choose from. The salsa was well flavored and had a little bite. There are different heat levels of salsa to choose from if the house isn't to your taste.

“Great Date Night Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2010

Ive been here about 5 times now. Even took a first-date there the other night and the service was excellent and attentive, the Guacamole Tostadas are fantastic, and the menu ranges from very reasonable to moderate just depending on what you order.
Friendly staff and a full bar as well.
TRY IT! You wont be disappointed.
Me and the date: several Coronas, Chips and Salsa, Guacamole Tostadas, and Beef Tacos= UNDER 40$!!

“Watch out for the Mariachi band!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2008

The food is good - but was not good enough for the noise on a Sunday. As typical in some mexican food restaurants, they like to bring in a mariachi band. And this would be great if the rooms were twice as big, or they were playing outside, or playing string instruments only. There was just too much noise! We couldn't have any conversation at our table.
We will avoid going back for fear of running into that mariachi band again.
