My wife and I stopped in for lunch. She had the chicken fajitas. They were tender, well seasoned, and plentiful. 4 full tortillas full. I chose the chipotle Asado. Sweet/spicy sauce, i would have liked to see it served with green peppers instead of just...More

I would not even recommend this place to somebody that I didn't like! The service was lousy, the food was nowhere near as good as Uncle Julio's.

Kitchen and staff incapable of handling even a small crowd. Patio was full and service was painfully slow. Drinks took forever to arrive, and food took even longer. Arrived cold and overdone.

Food and liquor priced competitively. Food is served in generous portions. Especially liked the outdoor patio that they have portable downdraft heaters for cool evenings.

While it shares the same name this restaurant has become overpriced and frankly under delivers on the food quality. I believe they used to have the same owners but I can no longer give this location a positive review.

The food is ample, with a diverse menu. Margaritas are ok, but I expected an excellent one, and was somewhat disappointed in the "off" taste. It was a Saturday night and they close at 10.

This is a place I have been going very often, I love the carne asada, the bistec ranchero. I ordered also chiles rellenos, but unfortunately the shrimp was not good. The nice waiter (Luis) offered kindly to change for a small additional fee. However, when...More
