This continues to be a great Tex-Mex dining experience. The food is great, the service is wonderful. The restaurant is very consistent. Each time you order a dish it is the same as it was the last time.

I live nearby. This is my local hangout. The house margaritas are awesome and the best around. But the food... is inconsistent. It can be "from the best I've ever had" to "gawd... I'll never eat here again"..... I've had chicken that was hard. Go figure. But the same dish when I had it before was awesome. You never know... More

I don't want others to know but this is the best value we've found for fresh food in Forsyth. Each of the sauces tastes like it was prepared from fresh ingredients that day. I've yet to have an average meal -- they've all been great.

Ordered chicken wings as an appetizer- all fat and couldn't eat them. Wife order soup that was so spicy it was inedible, fajitas only average, as was the service

Went here for the first time with a group of 7. Fantastic top shelf margaritas to start and the chips and salsa were great! Our waitress was excellent as well. The food was fast, hot and delicious!! Great visit. We will be back soon!

Went here for a friends birthday. Big group of us mad the service was good. Friendly and quick. Food was good as well. It was a good visit but just didn't stand out to me. Can't say I would go back for any reason.

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Chips and salsa were good. Food was bland. There are better Mexican restaurants in the area.

I took my kids for Mexican lunch here. It basically covers all basis but nothing special. The chips were 'ok'. It was convenient to where I was that day. Would not return.
