They have a great happy hour and killer margaritas! The portions are large and the chips and salsa are tasty.

Very good food, large portions! Love their spicy salsa.Good variety in their menus. One order of nachos is good for 6-8 people. I loved their fusion pasta dish.

I have been here so many times before to eat with family and friends, I've just forgotten this important part of reviewing! This particular visit, I came with a few friends for happy hour and food. Happy hour margaritas, done, delicious! Can't imagine them being better. The Queso Blanco dip is to die for!! I absolutely enjoy it every time... More

Spinach enchilada with rice and beans was a huge portion for lunch! Served tons of chips. With ice tea my bill was about $13 plus tip. Friend made two meals out of her lunch. Nice warm breeze off the patio, the doors were open. Several people with dogs were enjoying the patio. We had good service, I'd go again and... More

We went here based on reviews. The food is what you would expect at a chain restaurant, not exactly authentic Mexican cuisine. I had a carnitas burrito that was fairly basic. A nice feature of the restaurant is the salsa bar- where you can try a variety of salsas and hot sauces. Service was average.

Husband and I are visiting from Wisconsin (im originally from Arizona) and I wanted Mexican food but the husband doesn't like any type of ethnic food whatsoever. So I selected this place since it had good reviews and "gringo food" on the menu lol. He said his burger was outstanding, and he knows good burgers. I had the spinach enchiladas... More

We stopped in here yesterday for some Mexican food. I ordered the steak chimichanga and it did not disappoint. They use fajita steak and carmelized onions in the chimi. They top it with guacamole, sour cream and a lot of cheese along with lettuce and tomato. Add in the rice and beans and you need a take home container.

Friendly, attentive staff and good food. I ordered the siete combo for the tamale. The portions were very large. When I asked for a spicier chile, the heat was more than I could bear so they brought me out another serving of the second hottest sauce - yummy!
