“Fair”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Food is good but I think too pricey for what you get. The atmosphere is like a small Benigans or TGIF. Service was good but we were the only ones in the place so not sure what its like when busy.

“Not as good as expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Margaritas were huge and tasty. We had refills of the fresh tortilla chips and salsa, which was good. We all had beef fajitas, our 'go to' dish in new Mexican restaurants. They were so-so, but filling. Not sure if I need to go back or try some of the other Mexican places in town.

“First visit turns into last”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We love Mexican food and thought we'd give a different restaurant a try. The reviews said
the decor was something special and that is correct. As you walk in you do feel like you've
been transported to just over the Mexican border. After a short wait, we enjoyed a margarita
with fresh made tortilla chips with their homemade salsa and hot cheese dip. The cheese dip was pretty good, but I would like to see some chorizo or jalapenos added. Their salsa was fresh, but lacked luster. It's really not worth eating and would have rather they used canned tomatoes rather than fresh. Our waiter wasn't very attentive and we had to flag him down for another margarita. Our dinners came out warm, not hot. My chimichanga was made with nice white chicken meat, but again, it lacked flavor and could have used some something to zip it up.
The beans and rice were adequate, but nothing more than a plate filler. When we were ready to go, our waiter needed flagging again and failed to clear the table before presenting our check. That's just a no no! Time to return back to our favorite Mexican restaurant!

“Third Visit Still Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

My 3rd trip here never disappointed! We visit relatives in FL twice a year & we always make this a stop. Friendly service, great value, more food than we could eat!! The shrimp cocktail was a special 2 for 1 OMG that as really enough food didn't really need anything other than the chips & salsa!! We lost count after 10 shrimp and it's really more like a gaspacho! We'll be back!

“Hands Down, the Best Mexican Food In the Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

I normally loathe "Mexican" food, out, preferring to make my own at home. This is the exception. I begrudgingly allowed myself to be dragged in here and now I come at least once per month. If it were closer to my home, it would be once a week!

The portions are huge (have always left with a to-go box) and the prices are very reasonable. The provide home-made salsa that comes with the home-made tortilla chips (both are complimentary and all-you-can-eat) while you wait and both are an made to perfection! The decor and ambiance are quite pleasant. The staff speak both Spanish and English, fluently.

We have eaten pretty much everything on the menu and never been disappointed. My personal favorite is the Chimichanga meal. Come hungry and leave with leftovers!
