The food is good here. Inconsistency and service is the problem. I have always like the food, the fajitas and tios Mexican combo are my favorite. The guacamole is very good too. The service can take along time whether they are busy or slow. Food and drinks and take a long time to come out. But about 50% of the... More

Went there with family and a friend while visiting East Hartford. The restaurant was right across the street from our hotel, so very convenient. This was mid-week, so were surprised that after being seated, we waited 10 minutes for someone to take our order. It took another 15 minutes for our drinks to come, and another 20 minutes for someone... More

Food was ok but not worth the price. Margaritas were lacking tequila. Private party in another room let there children run and scream in the dining we were in.

Excellent food at reasonable prices. This place is huge! My son was also pleased that it is a Pokestop. LOL They were also very accommodating when I let the waitress know that my son has a peanut allergy -- the manager came over and explained the menu and anything that may be risky (which wasn't much -- they just couldn't...

The food and drinks are good. The staff is friendly and helpful. Happy hour is way too noisy because of the loud music in the bar. If you go to the dining room, it is not as bad

I won't say it's the greatest Mexican place ever... but I thought it was good enough to return twice, after my first visit... that's saying something, from me! I read other reviews complaining about service... but I had two great waitresses, and one outstanding bartender/waiter. The food was standard, to above standard chain mexican dishes. Pretty good chips and salsa...... More

Stopped in to a Cinco de Mayo throw-down at Margarita's hosted by Picozzi and Klonk from classic rock station 102.9 FM The Whale. The place was packed by late afternoon, with a line out the door. Amid the celebration we were able to grab the wait staff to order some queso and margaritas. The queso was not my favorite appetizer,... More
