“Just okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

With the increasing numbers of good Mexican restaraunts popping up all over the place like mushrooms I cannot justify going to Canton fighting the crowds and the annoying parking situation to eat here. There is really n othing special about the food. It is okay but nothing to write home about. If you like Mexican, drive out to Bel Air and visit La Tolteca before they get too popular and realize they can start jacking up their prices (which are bargain basement). They are well on there way.

Small place so get there early if you're going on a peak day/time. Buffalo chicken quesidilla was awesome as were the hub cap margaritas :-)

“Great restaurant but you must go at the right time.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

If you are not in the mood to wait do not try to come here during an Orioles or Ravens game or right at the lunch or dinner hour. At these times however you can sometimes still get a seat at the bar which is what we usually do if we have a strong mexican craving.
The food is great, I recommend getting the pulled pork on special whenever they have it in any dish, it always is delicious.
The Monday Tuesday pitcher of margaritas with purchase of two fajitas special, will leave you with a meal to bring home with you.
Their drinks are not weak, their food is great and the servers are always on top of their game.
The decor has a very funky sports and elvis vibe so if it is your first time in Baltimore enjoy the local charm.

“way too crowded and a very long wait”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

way too crowded and a very long wait. The wait was longer than anticipated and was told to wait at a bar that wae 5 deep. you could not wait anywhere but outside and it was raining. while I was outside looking in I saw at least a dozen tables clean and empty. This is a very poor managed resturant, as far as the seating. They had one person seating tables and a clip board for a list. This resturant needs a much better system. Would not recommend unless you go on a weekday in off peake time.
