Cinco de mayo is not a great day to review a Mexican Restaurant. Yes they used plastic and paper, but that is the only day of the year that the bar does not serve drinks in a glass and place Salsa in a bowl. We think that the food and service is great and it is our favorite local restaurant.... More

The service is friendly. Food priced higher than I expected . Food taste :meh and served lukewarm. I've been in other Mexican restaurants where food arrives very hot and very tasty so this was disappointing , especially since they were far from busy at the time. Not going to return

Went for Cinco de mayo and was really disappointed, you would think this is something a mexican restaurant could get right. Sat in the bar area because it wasn't crowded and the waiter brought us chips and salsa. The music playing,which one might expdet to go along with the celebration, was blaring '80s hair band, more like a high school... More

Under new ownership with a new menu the food has gone from pretty good to very good. Nice that everything is no longer smothered in cheese. Good attentive service and nice bar. Big improvement.

Not much unique about the menu, but food is of good quality and is fairly priced. Mexican staples are available, but the flavors are often not as robust as the appearance. Sauces tend to be bland and extra cheese is expected to fill the gap on some dishes.

We personally LOVE Senor "P's", best salsa anywhere (heavy on the cilantro) we get it to go for occasions, we will get it for the Superbowl along with their wonderful Chips! If you want a more Americanized south of the border type of food go somewhere else.

The menu has recently changed. Prices have gone up. The food is good and most often fresh. They are accommodating, even if you're u order off the menu. Service is good and prompt and friendly to boot. If you want an easy out dinner for a large group this is an ideal place.

Surprisingly very good Mexican restaurant. From the warm chips and salsa to the main dishes of Tilapia Veracruzana to the Shrimp Rice ball plate both delicious. It was a Saturday night and busy with familiy groups but service was still very good and you are not rushed. You must have the Churros desserts since they are made to order and... More
