“Average Mexican food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

It was nice to sit outside and overlook the busy street, and our giant margarita with the Coronita in it was good, but that's about it. The chicken flautas had not much flavor, and the enchiladas were about the same. The service was also not great-servers came and went outside to help other people, but ours and 2 other tables got ignored for about 20 min-we finally had to go inside and ask for someone to help us. Probably other good Mexican places downtown for you to go

“Tex Mex”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Great food for the price. Make sure you get the sampler with the 3 different kind of salsas! Perfect! Very relaxed atmosphere. Tv's everywhere and a little loud, but that is ok.

“Peachtree Mexican”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Casual Mexican restaurant, upstairs overlooking downtown Peachtree St. Sat out on the balcony watching the nightlife go by -reminded me of New Orleans. Food was good/ok but nothing spectacular. I asked if guacamole was made fresh and was told "it was made sometime that day, or maybe night before!" Nacho's were just ok too. It was a late night snack so it was nice that they were open, but I think they were all getting tired and it showed in the service.

Decent Mexican food. I went there twice and had mango chicken and a chicken quesadia. Both good washed down with margaritas.

“Okay food but at least they were open on July 4th!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

This was one of few restaurants open on July 4th so we were happy to find some place that was open. The food is okay. Average Mexican food but nothing special.
