We were very disappointed. After frequenting Mexican restaurants all around the country I would have to rate this one close to the bottom. The food was tasteless. The black beans were awful. Who ever heard of a Mexican restaurant that didn't have salsa? The pico was basically a tomato salad with no flavor.

Awesome food! Do not miss this place if your in town! Came here on a whim, looking at a house in the area. This will become our favorite restaurant!

We stopped here because it was across the street from the Place we wanted to eat at which was closed on Mondays. How can you screw up Mexican right? Wrong! Wait staff was fine but food was not. 7 meals and nobody was happy. Absolutely tasteless on all counts. I had chili and nachos. Chili tasted like Campbell's chunky soup... More

It was hard to find something on the menu that really grabbed my taste buds. There was 4 of us and every order was different. The guys both had diffenent kids of burritos and cleaned their plates, were they hungry or did they really like it? They said they liked it. I had a combo that included soup, they had... More

After an absolutely inedible meal, we'll only go back for the margaritas. Service was fine but I'm shocked by the quality of the food. I don't know how anyone can serve this and expect the customer to pay.

We were interested in an afternoon snack and thought a margarita would hit the spot. Unfortunately, the margaritas were made with sticky sweet artificial mix. At least we got to choose our tequila. The chips were stale and the salsa was made with pink tomatoes. I was quite disappointed. The only reason I gave this a two point rating is... More

We travel the country and work from the road 365 days a year! We love Mexican food and this was by far the worst food ever. I personally would not call this Mexican food. Please don't waste you time or money! The positive is the margaritas are excellent!
