I've had a molcajete at one other place, and it was 30 bucks, and almost as good. Granted it was larger, but the one here has sooo much more meat. And, it was only 11 bucks. A freakin bargin. If you like Mexican food, stop by here, you won't regret it.

The food is pretty good here although you should watch your step! I've been here twice and each time the floor in the dining room past the cash register and to the right is slick! As in greasy slick. As in your feet slide when u try to walk so you kind of end up walking like a goat on... More

We had dinner there one night and the service was quick and attentive...the food came out quickly but the only downside is it lacked a lot of flavor...seemed mostly bland

This was recommended to us by the hotel desk clerk, and he did not do us wrong. The food was good Mexican fare, but the margaritas were outstanding. Not just good, but the best price I ever remember seeing for a schooner size. And the menu prices were good, a bargain for what we usually spend for dinner. Just what... More

I don't know if they were just having an off day because to me the food was just OK and my mixed drink was so bad I couldn't drink it. Everyone else says they are great so it would be you would have to go and check it out yourself to decide. I personally like Las maracas better.

One of the best meals I have had at lunch time. Lunch specials were that same size as the regular meals but at he special price. Chicken fajita's were to die for and the quantity was so much more than my wife could eat. I tried the fajita beef chimichanga and like wise more than I could eat. Endless chips... More

I have NEVER been treated so disrespectfully at a restaurant....ever! Our meal was not prepared correctly, so we sent the meal back. Not only did the kitchen staff refuse to remake it! (can you believe that?), but when we asked to speak to the manager, we were also denied that right as well. I wish I could give this experience... More
