Chicken tortilla soup was good and the brisket quesadilla was ok. Chips and salsa served were hot and fresh. Service was quick at lunch time and prices are reasonable. No issues but the quesadilla could be better, not much cheese...

Average Tex-Mex food, nice chips and pico de gallo and good mixed fajitas, not big deal. The food could be much better, the place was somehow empty, service was good and quick. I may not come back, a lot of better restaurants around the area. Price and ambiance OK.

Drinks were good, can't say the same about their food. I have been at this location 3 times. It is a fun place for drinks and to munch on some appetizers. Their entrees are nothing out of this world.

We went to have dinner with friends and the restaurant was a little busy but for sure the management need to work more to avoid little customer service mistakes. For example the chips and salsa were served after dinner was delivered to our table (even when we asked twice), the floor was dirty, hostess were not aware of empty tables... More

I went there yesterday in the evening in with my wife. Chips and salsa hit the table and life is good! I love those chips and salsa. We ordered the Jalapeño poppers. When they get to the table there were two giant clumps of poppers on the plate. I asked our server if that was the way it should be,... More

Take out service is never accurate and wait times are long. If service would improve would definitely visit again, but there are better Mexican food options with superior service around Miami Lakes area.

Had a craving for Mexican food. We chose the right place. Staff was great, steak was cooked perfectly. Just a nice meal.

Went during the Holiday Week with the family. Great service and atmosphere. Servers were courteous and professional as in our first visit. Still unchanged was the food still overly salty. Go for the variety of very good tequila mixes.

I'm going to start my review by explaining why this place is always empty: 1. Service is horrible- the server we got was Jennifer and she's the worst to me. I order a side of sour cream and instead I received someone left overs, it had lettuce,onions,cabbage and guacamole. When I told her to please exchange it, her reply was... More
