Went during Spring Break at UA, so there was no wait for a table! There is a daily lunch special-fajitas on Fridays-so we ordered that. Both the chicken and the beef were fresh and sizzling. The chips and salsa were also fresh, with a little...More

Very very very slow service on both food and beer. Nachos were interesting. Good tasting but you had to build them yourself. Beer was cold and icy. Get the large because it takes awhile to get another.

My wife and I had a margarita and appetizer here before the game. We shared the chicken nachos and they were very good. Chips and salsa were good also as were the margaritas.

Standard American Mexican food. Food is what you'd expect in terms of quality but have good lunch specials so it's cheap

Should have known something was up when we arrived at 12:45 on a Saturday (opening day of football in Tuscaloosa!) and we were the only ones there. Chips tasted like they were from a bag and I think the salsa was Old El Paso jar...More

Not fair for me to rate this-I live in San Antonio. It is OK Mexican food. The margaritas are very good and it is a good happy hour spot. I don't usually eat Mexican food in AL but met my nephew and his friends there....More

The food here was disgusting. There was nothing fresh. The chicken was probably shredded a couple of months ago. The drinks were terrible and the service was poor. Even the chips and salsa tasted bad. Do not waste your money at this restaurant. It has...More
