“Little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

I love this place. I passed by this place several times before I realized it was there! The food is great. Atmosphere even better. Not to mention the waiters estan muy guapo. Five stars across the board.

“EJ's!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

This is our favourite neighbourhood watering hole. It's like Cheers, "where everybody knows your name"! I moved to Snellville from NY 10years ago & this is our all occasion spot! Birthdays, deaths, hell, it's Wednesday & the sky is blue! We're there! Their mango margaritas can NOT be beat! The only place I've ever found one that compares was on a little spot on 5th Ave in Playa del Carmen. I've brought several girlfriends from work there, and this has become our joint! We actually have a 1pm Margarita date tomorrow! The food is plentiful, the people are AMAZING, the atmosphere is awesome & the margaritas are PHENOMENAL!! What more could you ask for?

“Great Food (and plenty of it)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

Had the Chicken Fajitas with rice and beans....Whoa, it was good, and they are not stingy with the food. Had plenty to take home for leftovers. Nice atmosphere. Will definitely return and recommend to others.

“always a winner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

The food is terrific and the atmosphere is great too. The staff is always available but not in the way. A really fun family night out or suitable for a date night. We try something different from the menu often, and have never been disappointed.

“Never a bad meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Definitely a favorite! The salsa is made on the premises, so it's not surprising there's some variation. But, it's always good-my husband sometimes will stop by and get some chips and salsa to take home because he likes them so much. We've never had a wait longer than 10 minutes-and that time we had a party of 7!
