“By far the best Tex-Mex in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

I can only guess the negative reviews are written by the owners of other Tex-Mex restaurants. I am a Tex-Mex afficiadano and THIS is great Tex-Mex. The food is great. Yes the surroundings are not stylish but it gives it a sense of being real not a chain. Yes the wait staff can be slow but the place can be packed and they get overwhelmed. Relax and enjoy the FOOD!
