Everyone who works here seems cheerful and when you try the food, you know why. The margaritas are great and the chunky avocado dip could be a meal in itself. We are usually a mixed bunch: two senior citizens, our daughter, her boyfriend & her son. My daughter is vegetarian & her son is a bit "hyper" and it doesn't... More

We were excited to try Mexican in our immediate neighborhood so went there for lunch. Everything was OK, but the salsa, for example, was just bland. I had a chile relleno and it was good, but again just didn't really pack a punch. The poblano itself was a tiny bit tough, and the queso inside was OK, but nothing to... More

Stopped by this Mexican restaurant on a chilly Friday night and it was bustling even at 7:30pm. After a short wait, our party was seated and immediately served fresh tortilla chips and salsa. My mojito was perfect. The menu is extensive with something for everyone, from combination plates to single street tacos. My tostada was just enough as I wasn't... More

This is our favorite place for Mexican food in town! We go there almost weekly and are very rarely disappointed. Combos, nachos, ceviche, tortilla soup, specials - all delicious. Also the margaritas are excellent and not a cheap watered down version.

We visited this restaurant with a large group, so I decided to mark them up to 3 stars. The food wasn't too good, and the service was average at best. We probably won't return.

Very good Mexican food. Service is fast. Chips and salsa are good. Pretty standard American Mexican but very good.

My wife and I tried this place since it is close to us and we've eaten at the one in Dothan, AL, which was OK. My enchiladas were no prepared exactly as I'd asked but were OK. The beans and rice seemed like something you'd get in a frozen dinner....but edible. My wife had an enchilada and taco and she... More
