Great drinks, huge portions

I'd like to start this review by saying that I've been to Mexico - and not just the watered down touristy portion either, the real cultural parts. So when I tell you that this place and, its food, and its service reminds me of Mexico, I mean authentic Mexico - not the Americanized version. The... read more

Stopped in recently for a great lunch. They offer any combination specials. You can't go wrong with anything. Authentic Mexican dishes served hot. Fast and friendly. Hot chips and great salsa.

Don't tell me an onion skin is crabmeat in my seafood dish as you had to dig around to come up with that ...don't tell my wife that a tablespoon of meat and sour cream, a skinny slice of tomato and tons of lettuce is what you call your nacho plate... what garbage. Should have known something was wrong when... More

Not the most authentic Mexican food but a lot closer than most places. The food is really good and the prices are fair. Really love the size of the menu and some of the platter options here. Great place to hang with some friends and enjoy some drinks with your chips and salsa.

This is one of the best Mexican restaurants in the entire region in my opinion for authentic food. Though I feel there is a big difference in the service between this location and the one in Asbury location, this one is better!

From the first step in the door until leaving we were very impressed. Very clean, well decorated, lots of staff members to make this one of the best run restaurants in the World. Our waiter, although busy on a Wednesday evening, made sure we were satisfied and taken care of. My only regret is that we do not have a... More

Food was ok, service was below average. Manager would not honor local coupons in Travel Dubuque magazine. Try to try local going back to chains.
