Food is excellent however the service at the end spoiled a great meal. Server was fine until he brought the check, took him nearly 15 minutes to comeback and pick it up along asking for a second time for a takeout contaner, it took the server over 10 minutes to return with the check so I could sign and again...

I arrived after the lunch rush. Food was fast as were the drinks. The meal was typical American Mexican and quite tasty.

Food was good and plentiful. Surprised there was no pork on the menu. The salsa had good flavor and the chips were fresh. The only bad thing was getting water glasses replenished.mother than that the meal was good, great lunch specials and the atmosphere was authentic Mexican done classy.

Stopped by the Stuart location for an early dinner. The only thing that move slower than our waiter Raul was the melting of the polar ice caps. However, it is a close race. Our order was eventually taken and the food arrived quickly....well most of it anyway. I ordered the Taco/Tamale plate and my wife had the Carne Asada. The... More

The restaurant uses a lot of authentic hand carved wood tables and decorations. At 7:30 on a Friday night we had to wait about 20 minutes for a seat for five adults. Then we waited another 30-minutes to be served our meals. The servants were good however. The food was very good, but was Americanized Mexican (which I prefer). I... More

Went for dinner with my wife, son and grandson. Atmosphere was pleasant with a nice Mexican decor. Ordered the standard fare - chicken burrito, Cheese Quesadilla, Chicken Mole. First the chips and salsa came which none of were crazy about and then the meals arrived. Everything was alright. Nothing really tasty but rather bland. The waiter was nice and the... More

My family and I ate here a year ago. The service was so bad, and non existent, we swore never to come back. Tonight we thought we'd give them a second chance- TERRIBLE! We ordered queso dip and margaritas. The margaritas came after 15 minutes and the queso 5 after that. We ordered dinner. After 30 minutes, the server came... More

This is one of our favorite places for a last minute date night. Servers are very attentive and the food satisfies our palates every time. We enjoy the authentic Mexican food and refreshing "house" Margaritas. Love the Seafood Chimichanga!

We like to eat lunch out and it appears even though they open at 11 am, they are not in the mood to serve lunch. The service was slow and the food was not up to par. We did have dinner there one night and the service was better and the food was good.
