We liked it. It's a small neighborhood place. We sat in the bar area and had margaritas and nachos. It was a cozy lil night. We enjoyed it.

I have been to this place several times and have enjoyed every meal I've been served. They are about the same price as other local Mexican restaurants. It's nice atmosphere. The only complaint I have would be that the service is not always fast and sometimes we have had to wait to have a server approach us to take our... More

A standard of customer service does not exist in this establishment. Not only would the bartender/service person (usually only person "working") be too interested in flirting with whatever person she is serving at the bar, but if you decide to eat here; get ready to wait for everything. Except your food. They toss that slop onto the plate quickly. No... More

I am amazed at the good reviews to this place. We stopped in here after picking up our son at the airport, and he wanted Mexican, so I thought we would give it a try since it had pretty good reviews. Come on tripadvisor people...don't ruin the fact that tripadvisor is known for telling the real truth about experiences, good... More

It may not of helped that we decided to go to lunch on Christmas Eve but my food was disgusting. I ordered two tacos and the meat tasted worse than a jack n the box taco. It made me sick to my stomach with two bites. We told the server that the quality was unacceptable, she told us that she'd... More

The restaurant only had three other groups of diners while we were eating but only one waitress was working. I expected slow service but she was very quick and attentive. We were never waiting for refills or service. She was quick and efficient at all tables. As for the food, it is easily the best Mexican food I have had... More

Went with wife and step daughter for a nice night out. Was not aware it would take the majority of the evening. Normally you are given a bowl of chips and salsa which is basically to tide you over till the food arrives. Service was so slow, we went through 4 bowls of chip. The wait time was extreme. There...
