Mixed Mexican

Pozole was good. Margarita was tasty. Fish tacos were OK. Selections were overpriced. We asked for some cheese for my daughter who is 5 yrs old and they charged us $9.49 for a small plate of melted cheese. She liked it but I did not like the price. When I asked for a reduction in price, I was... read more

We ate there late on a Sunday evening. Our server was awesome. The food was very good and plenty of it. We had drive by on a Saturday evening and the parking lot was full. A restaurant can't be bad if the parking lot is full. I'm glad we decided to give it a try.

When I lived in the area, I went here all the time. Now I only get to go when I visit my parents. I always order the Chicken Mole. It is the best Chicken Mole I have ever had. And I have eaten this dish at many restaurants. The service was also very good this time, as it always is.

I've been here several times over the years to give it another chance, and it's just ok. I think it's overpriced for what you get, and the food is so-so. Portions are small too. I keep telling myself the next time I go it will be better, but so far that hasn't been the case.,

The summer menu includes many new dishes. The seafood combination with shrimp, tilapia and crab cake was mouth watering and more food that you could ask for! I also enjoyed the green Iguana margarita special which has melon flavored liquor. I didn't like it at first sip but as the glass emptied It grew in need. I was there on... More

We loved it here! It was later in the evening when we were here, but our food was served quick and fresh. Guacamole was bland, but everything was delish!

I have been here twice. My first visit was not positive and probably would not have gone back. However, I was invited to attend a birthday gathering so I went looking at giving them the benefit of the doubt. Well, they lived up to my first experience and assured that I will never be back. The food was bland and... More

My recent visit to jalapeños was great.my wife and I went for there all you can eat tacos. We had their chicken tacos with hardshell ' s. They were great and the staff was excellent. It's definitely worth it and highly recommended.
