I used to enjoy this restaurant but the food just doesn't seem to be as good. The salsa is not good, taste like it comes out of a can.

Nothing really special about the food. It's good. Environment is good. Decor is great. Service is always excellent. They're great about keeping your drinks full and salsa.

No frills here, people. Simply adequate, lightning fast service and cheap, delicious food. My partner and I eat here about once every other month. It is our go-to on nights we don't feel like cooking. I always get the vegetarian spinach fajitas. The beans and rice and solid. The guacamole you get on the side is pretty good. You get... More

Consistently good Mexican food. When your only complaint is that your husband couldn't get a room temperature "glass" glass for his beer, then its a good night! I had the steak & chicken fajitas and my husband had soft chicken tacos. They had no problem substituting my rice for double beans. Quick service.

The food is ok and atmosphere is typical for a Mexican restaurant. It could be a little cleaner - NOT saying they have a bad health rating! Just when you are sitting in a booth and see a half-inch dust on the windowsill, makes you think about what else is being overlooked.

The steak fajitas are average. Nothing fancy, but the portions are large. Drink specials for Cinco de Mayo.

Good service for average mexican food. I do not care for the chips or the very salty tomato base salsa. My family likes this restaurant.

We go to lunch here often since it is nearby. Good fresh and fast. We like the vegetarian options and the fajitas. Our waiter usually never lets our glasses go below half. Many times we share because the portions are so large. The evenings can be noisy with small children. Clean restrooms. Will keep them on our short list for... More
