“this restaurant could survive anywhere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

As i live in oklahoma and have 8 sit down mexican restaurants within 4 miles of where i live i have high-expectations. this place was not a let down. the service was good, the lunch portions were huge for the money and the requested mole sauce rivaled anything you would find here, i left a good sized tip because the service was so good, try it

“It was decent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

This isn't the best Mexican food that I've ever eaten, but it wasn't the worst. The chips and salsa was good and the food is a decent value for the money. The server was nice but spoke very limited English, so I wouldn't expect to be able to make any special requests. The decor was fantastic, especially the chairs.

“GREAT FOOD!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We have been here a couple of times and each time, the food was excellent, Service was very fast and efficient. We sat at the bar last week and got take out. The staff was very authentic, engaging and helpful. You get a real Mexican feel here. I would highly recommend this place for a family or friend night out. I do not recommend the Margaritas. Not the best, I would stick to a beer-

“A friendly neighbourhood Mexican restaurant with an excellent variety on the menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

This is our local Mexican eatery. They have a nice selection of dishes and the food is always well prepared. The one challenge is trying to order a cocktail. The wait staff is not well versed in all of the bar details, so I would stick with the drinks on the menu, otherwise it could be an adventure.
Otherwise, this is a great value for the money. Try the daily special, it's always great tasting and very well priced.
