“Huge portions - fun atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

I don't think the food is amazing (although they have a soup that is surprisingly good) and the Margaritas are okay, but the actual atmosphere of the place is really fun. Everyone has a good time and the lighting is perfect during lunch time. Fun place to go with your coworkers.

“Friendly service, food is...Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

Servers are all very friendly and quick (especially at lunch time and with large groups). The food isn't bad...it's just sort of average and has a mass-production feel to it.

“Uninspired Tex-Mex food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

Very bland and uninteresting Tex-Mex food. Looks like it is from a frozen "TV" dinner. Would not go back.

“Great family place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

The food itself is only fair, but I've never seen food served so quickly. Great place to take kids because they don't have to wait long for their food.
