Reasonable, charming decor. You wait but so worth it! Great margaritas and the food is so tasteful and fresh. Salsa bar is great! A flavorful evening. Will be back often.

I don't eat Mexican cuisine often; no longer part of my diet. However, it is a favorite of my friends so I went with them. The restaurant is quaint and very busy. Great wait staff and best Mexican food I can recall experiencing. Numerous choices of food and drinks. Large servings! A buffet of salsa choices, freshly prepared. I ordered... More

This place is great. The food is great, I recommend the Carnitas Zacatecas. O M G!!! I love their bean dip too. 2 bars in one restaurant. VERY limited parking. I think the longest we waited was 2 hours and the shortest wait was non peak hours and about 15 minutes (before 3pm on a weekday).

The food here is amazing! The drinks are cheap, but very tasty and get you right! It does get really crowded, but it is definitely worth the wait. The service is quick, but it all depends on the time you get there. Parking is hectic, as their lot is small. Street parking in the area is usually not too bad.

Love the steak tacos. Corn tortilla was thin and crispy. The other three people with me had the burritos, enchiladas and tacos. We all loved the food. It came out quickly and hot. I personally thought the beans were too hot, but the others with me liked them. The rice was very good and I would go back just for... More

Great quality, quantity, and vegetarian options, this place is affordable and amazingly delicious.

Went on a Friday evening and couldn't get in, 2 hour wait, then again a Friday at 3 pm and managed to get in. You can get in... More

This has become my go to place for reasonably priced Mexican food. It's pretty large and always crowded but worth it. I've pretty much stuck to the basics: tacos, enchilada's etc. and they're all really good. My wife and son love their fajita's. Parking is HORRIBLE! I either park on the street or in the Home Depot lot. Be prepared... More

I know its saying a lot, but this was the best Mexican food ever. My customer took me there, he said it was great, he said the food was great, he said save room for the flan. The food was incredible. I didn't save room for the flan, but I ordered the flan anyway. I'm not saying I'm a big... More
