It's Fair

This is not bad food it's just not very good. We have eaten Mexican food all over the U.S. And this restaurant would be in my bottom 25%. The service is 50/50. I have had a good and terrible server. As a whole it is not what I would call a very friendly place. In fact I have seen them... read more

My 2 coworkers and I went here for lunch. There were barely any other customers so you would think that the servers would be at least alittle more attentive. We got seated quickly and placed our orders. We didn't even make changes to the menu. One of us ordered a ground beef burrito, the other ordered a vegetarian chimichanga, and... More

Ate here because it was close to the hotel that we stayed at and we were too hungry to look for another restaurant. Typical chain mexican food. Service was slow except for our food arrived literally 2 minutes after we ordered it, microwave hot. They look like they do good business so maybe its hard to find good mexican in... More

Very friendly staff, but I did get diet soda a few times without realizing it! Language may have been a bit of a problem for native english speakers, but that said the food was above average, the price was right, excellent "special" margarita, cannot remember exact name...but needless to say, our drinker did not drive! :) The salsa was a...

I've seen this restaurant from the road on several occasions and decided to try it. I ordered the salmon on a Santa Fe salad which was lettuce, green peppers, avocado and a few other salad items but no dressing. I had chips and salsa so I spooned some of the salsa onto the salad to give it some flavor. I... More

We couldn't decide where to go, so we stopped here. I don't like to give bad reviews, but this was the worst Mexican food (and maybe the worst restaurant food) I can recall eating, ever. My husbands tacos came with out cheese, sour cream, or lettuce. They were essentially meat and a shell. He had to take sour cream and... More

The food was alright. Basic Mexican dishes prepared to eat, hot and fresh. Our waitress could not be bothered to look at the table, let alone make eye contact with any of us, smile, or have any form of common courtesy. Again, o.k. food, not worth it to go again because the service was so poor.
