“Wannabe Taco Cabana”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Not consistant with menu items. Ordered a guacamole chalupa, first time, very good, lots of guac. Second time, maybe half a teaspoon of guac. Extremely casual, very bright and loud. Enchilada plate was fair at best. Order taker was kinda wacky, singing and dancing.

“Good food, cheap prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Had the beef fajita plate. It was yummy, and had a ton of fajita meat. Also ordered the bean and cheese chalupa: delicious. Chips are nice and warm. Good experience.

“Quick, fast, homestyle Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

The decoration of the place is typical of a "wanna be border town Mexican place" You order, find a seat and they call out your order when done. The chips, salsa and drinks are laregley self serve. It is a very laid back place. The multiple flat screensa are great during whatever season is your favororite. The chips are fresh, hot and micro thin. My grandson said "they were dancing in my mouth and having a party all the way to my stomach" Big praise from a seriously picky earter. The kids had enchillads and chaplupus which they loved. My husband had fajitas, I had the carne asada. Way too much food to finish. The borrocho beans were very good but could have used a bit more bite. We LOVED that nothing was doused with cilantro. The salsa bar had it readily available for those who wanted..but was wonderful for those of us who hate the stuff. Prices were extremely reasonable. ($30 for 4 with drinks) The staff was friendly but not obtrusive. Seating options of tables and boothes was nice. Everything was clean and the place was packed. We will def. be back. Thanks for a choice besides Chuys on the NE side.It is also open 24 hours and has drive throughas well.
