“decor & service great but food is NOT.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

walked in, and restaurant is decorated w/ usual mexican decor and looks nice. waitress and greeter were both nice. I ordered the green chicken enchiladas and hubby ordered the fish tacos. the chicken tasted gross, like it had freezer burn or was old. my beans had bubbles, so I suspect they had been warmed in the microwave. the fish tacos had a white sauce in them vs being grilled.
I usually eat all my food but could barely finish anything on account of the chicken taste. :o(
I am mexican and from TX so I know good mexican food. we are military so I have also traveled a lot and know that mexican food won't always taste the same. I saw some reviews were not good and I should've heeded them. I don't consider myself picky so, if you don't care for real mexican (not surprising since FL has more carribean influence) then you're good. but, I will NOT be coming back here. :o(

“Ehh..... won't return. Food didn't seem fresh.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

It had good appetizers, entrees did not taste fresh. Went because we had a Groupon, I don't think we would return and pay regular price. Price's seemed reasonable.
