“Great Food & Prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012 via mobile

This is one of my favorites places to eat for the value. I love the owners, Maurice, Nora and their son-Jose. Saul, the chef is wonderful too.

“If you want Quantity over Quality this place is for you”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2011

They are short staffed at the Crosshill Blvd location. It is a franchise and if you like Quantity over Quality this place is for you. it is inexpensive for what you get. However, it is not my idea of a good Mexican restaurant. I guess after a few cheap Margarita's the food may taste better. If you want to have a conversation, shouting or texting is the only way.

“Always Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2011

Great service. Great food. Had them cater for a business lunch once and they did an amazing job - hot food, exactly as ordered, and they figured the quantities perfectly.

“Great service, price and qaunity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2011

When w are leaving work and want to go to an extremely casual place to eat this is it.
The food is good tasting and the portions are great. We have always taken leftovers home.

Price is very affordable and the staff is very accommodating on special requests.

“The most incredibly mediocre Mexican of all time”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2011

I am shocked to think that I read some very positive reviews on other online services. This place serves everything BLAND and gloppy. If you liked Elmer's glue, you will love this place. Anybody with a taste bud or two - avoid- run away. Hide. The only thing it offers is noisey drunks.
