Had the nachos for lunch and they are HUGE! We had great service in an authentic Mexican place. I would go back when I am hungry for this food type.

My family and I frequent this restaurant often. No matter what time of day, no matter how busy, the service is excellent and the food matches that. Friendly staff, awesome food.

Service was the main issue here. It started out good but soon we had to wait for everything. 20 minutes to get our check. Then the bill was wrong. Our waiter was nice but she had way too many tables.

Good salsa and chips - very fresh. My husband had a fish taco and said it was great. I had the tortilla soup and it was very average - the broth tasted like chicken bullion cubes from a jar. Guacamole was ok, nothing fantastic. Service was very speedy and the servers were very nice. Beer was super-cold. Worth a stop... More

We dined in last night around 8pm. We thought it wOuld be crowded since it was a Saturday night. Well it wasn't. We had to wait an extended amount of time for EVERYTHING including food, drinks and silverware. The waitress was too busy at a nearby table talking to two ladies that were obviously her friends. Cold Food, No refills... More
