We eat a lot of Mexican style food. Tequila's is still my favorite. The vegetarian special dinner is my favorite. Salsa and pico de gio are really good. The chips seem fresh. My only objection is I would like to see them develop some more modern margarita flavor sand larger glasses. Service has never been an issue.

When I'm in the mood for Mexican this is the restaurant I go to. The food is great, the portions are huge, and it's not over priced. The weekends are usually very busy so it's best to call ahead. They also have a decent happy hour menu.

The service was slow, the waitress came out with an attitude, and my order was wrong when it finally came out. Haven't been back since.

One of the few Mexican restaurants in the area, this place started out pretty awesome. Really good guacamole and the tamales were also good. Something happened and the quality has been getting worse. I went about 3 weeks ago and the quality seemed better but the service was as bad as the time before.

We stopped here on our way home as we love Mexican food. Chips and salsa were just ok. Salsa was good but it did not have much of a kick. Dips were bland and tasted like they had about one day of shelf life left. The shrimp quesadilla was good. The fried chimichanga was very good according to my husband.... More

My boyfriend and I stopped here for dinner on our way back from a road trip... the guacamole wasn't stellar but the queso dip was excellent -- our entrees were huge portions with fresh ingredients. Staff was friendly and attentive. Yum!

Very friendly staff and the food was excellent. Good for family and couples. The only thing that might make it better is if they had some booths to give you more privacy.

We love coming here for Margaritas and their salsa. Authentic Mexican with great fajitas and other Mexican dishes. Our favorite is the Chicken and Shrimp Burrito.
