This is a good quick meal at lunchtime, we were seated immediately and didn't have to wait to order or to receive food. Menu showcases variety of dishes and drinks. Kids portions are appropriately sized for small kids (under 10) but hungrier kids should order off the adult menu. My daughters loved the rice and french fries for their sides.... More

First and most important to me, my grandchildren love this restaurant so we visit every month or so. They do have a varied and satisfying choice of dishes. I had the quesadilla Wow. This is grilled chicken, onions, cheese and bell peppers with a side guacamole salad. It was very good. Between my wife and the grands there were tacos,... More

We were staying downtown & had walked to campus and restaurants near the hotel for a couple of days & we were ready for new scenery! Took off for Aqua Linda, about a 10 minute drive. Saw lots of cool, funky restaurants & shopping along the way. There was plenty of parking on the street and in a side lot.... More

This is a restaurant when I walked in I wasn't sure about but it was great! Try the enchiladas with mole sauce. Salsa was good but not spicy enough for me. Food was hot and bean and rice were awesome. Service was fast and wait staff was quick to serve. Try it soon!

As Mexican themed restaurants go.....this one is above par. No waiting and quick service. We got three different dipping sauces for the preliminary chips.

Have been going here every Thursday with a group of friends for about 2 years. They are consistently awesome. Servers are patient, friendly, helpful and quick to serve. The food tastes great. I always take half of it home, the portions are so generous. Estefan is the most welcoming host you could ask for. He treats everyone like they are... More

Just passing through quickly and wanted a quick bite before hitting the road for 5 hours: had a great set of tacos and you get three salsas with your chips. Quick friendly service, comfortable atmosphere.
