We come here when we go to the villages. The portions are huge so come hungry or share a meal. Came on a Sunday, not crowded at all. Waitress was friendly both times we ate. Cheese dip could have been a little more smoother but...More

I don’t know what part of Mexico puts oregano in their salsa, but no part of Mexico I’ve been too. The menu isn’t very appealing to me, and the food is mediocre at best.

Go at lunch as the prices are less, but the quality is still great. Service is okay, and the food is very good. Prices are good too.

We both enjoyed the salsa very much. The happy hour prices were good. The atmosphere was nice and it has outside dining. The food was just average. Will return and try something different.

We have been to countless Mexican Restaurants through the U.S., Mexico and other countries and this was the most disappointing of ALL. First let me say that it had a good crowd, but it was not crowded and it’s took us 15 minutes to get...More

Tasty, hot food---not as spicy as we like---but A.-O.K. Good chips & salsa, cute interior, reminds of places in Mexico we've visited. We are both Celiac Sprue (gluten intolerant) so must be careful where we eat. Ate here with no problems; they even fixed us...More
