“Good value- our new favorite for local mexican food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Well, this place did not look that good from the outside, however, we gave it a chance, and it was much nicer inside! We were not disappointed. The inside is very festively decorated, perhaps a little over the top- all the chairs and booths have painted mexican scenes. The value was 5 star- Fridays/Saturdays they have $5 margaritas and these were fully loaded. The taco salad was good, the fried ice cream desert was good. Most mexican restaurants offer either smoky or spicy salsa, this restaurant has a nice salsa on the sweeter side. The fahitas were good, however, the chicken was cut into very small pieces and this is where they may be saving some food costs. They have outdoor seating and you don't need reservations. There is a nice reindeer statue outside, however, the gold- painted lion statue next to it is a little tacky. We'll be back!

“keep the margaritas coming!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

The margaritas are very good, I had Lime flavor. I also ordered chicken quesadillas which were pretty good. So at first we had a waitress, she was so rude, she never came to our table to take our order, she didn't deserve a tip seriously, but then we had this waiter, he was so nice and suggested a drink called "Paloma", I recommend it as well, it was very good! I would recommend outside sitting since inside it's kind of packed!

“Festive and Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Loved their signature margarita and the food is delicious. Sitting outside on a nice day is lovely. Inside the decor is fun fiesta colors. Love this place for all that and reasonable prices too.

“Fun place, good service, drink specials”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

This is a fun place, good crowd, bright and colorful decor. They had some good drink specials, and the margaritas were good. The service was fast and friendly, the food was good but not great. We would definitely return!
