Being that I'm from Oklahoma where we have many Mexican restaurants to experience, I have to rate this restaurant only average. The guacamole appetizer was actually pretty good, but the chile rellano I had was overcooked and was barely filled with cheese. The atmosphere was...More

We enjoyed our meal here very much. The food was so fresh and delicious. Service was average. We were not offered refills on our soft drinks/waters, and had to request them. It was not a busy place and we were seated without a wait. I'd...More

Better than the usual "Mexican" or "South American" offerings this far north. The fajitas were good, The chips were fresh and crisp. Pleasant atmosphere, too. Friendly nd attentive service. A keeper.

We were considering this place from happy hour and asked to see the menu. The server acted like she was doing us a favor to give us the menu. Pass on the attitude. Passed on the restaurant.

I have previously eaten from here on several occassions and love the fajitas. However, I have always ordered out from ubër Eats. I decided to take a friend there today. The service was terrible. It took 15 minutes just to get water. We finally placed...More

Nice place in the underground Crystal City shopping mall. Nothing special, but the service is pretty efficient and you won't walk away hungry. They start you out with some chips and salsa which is definitely on the spicy side. You'll need a drink to cool...More

Went for lunch on a Sunday before catching to Metro for the airport. The restaurant had just a few people when we arrived. The wait staff looked busy and took quite a few minutes to get our drink orders. We ordered the food after a...More
