Was taken here by brother-in-law for a delicious dinner. We all had chicken burritos and they were great. Nothing to hot or to mild everything was done just right. The staff was very friendly and were able to suggest popular items and the restaurant specials.

Great dinner, great drinks and great service. My wife and I love to start our weekend with Mexican. We had great guacamole, I had chicken mole poblano and she had halibut on a bed of rice corn and poblano chiles. We finished our dinner with honey glazed crepes. A must visit.

Our new favorite Mexican restaurant. The best Tex-Mex food east of Texas. Great margaritas. Tender tasty meat in burrito and quesadilla. Even though restaurant was busy service was quick and efficient.

Been coming here for years. Some of the best Mexican we've had. Very interesting dishes and their margaritas are great - some made with fresh fruit. On a nice night, stinging outside on the porch is our favorite spot. Great molé and guacamole that is hand made and served in a large wooden bowl. Ambiance inside is nice as well.

We have driven by this restaurant hundreds of time but this time we stayed nearby and decided to dine here, we weren't disappointed. Some of the apps are ceviche, crepes stuffed with shiitake mushrooms and chipotle, and of course nachos layered with fun stuff. Their entre choices ranged from fajitas, burritos, fish (red snapper, salmon, shrimp, etc), steaks, lamb, and... More

The Restaurant was crowded and noisy. Didnot honor reservations, The food quality has decrease with no flavoring. Been there before and has worsened. Did not serve Torillas with the dinner(before they did). Service patchy.

The menu here is not all that different from many Mexican restaurants, but the kitchen's use of fresh, high-quality ingredients sets it apart. Even the salsa (actually, more like Pico di Gallo) tastes freshly made. On our most recent visit, I had hoped to have their chicken chilaquiles, which I've loved in the past, but it wasn't on the menu.... More

I love the food here. Every meal I have tried has been very tasty. My two favorites are the enchilada especial and the carnitas. The carnitas is a pretty heavy dish, but is great. Melt in your mouth pork. The enchiladas never disappoint either. Lunches are also great. Many options.

Thank Samantha N
