I have gone here a couple of times, and find the food fair but for what it is, it seems overpriced. The atmosphere is nice, but the service just service. No one is overly friendly.

I've been frequenting this restaurant since they opened this location after starting out on Utica Rd just around the corner. Their unique Soft Shell Tacos are a must! They have ground beef, chicken and my absolute favorite, shredded beef.

Went just for sla family gathering of 12. Service was ok, however the food could have been better. We have visited this place a number of times and I am being far to say, it's just ok.

Love this place for an interesting Mexican dinner. The puffy tacos and margaritas are my go to meal. This is a big place, and food usually comes out pretty quickly, although you may need to wait for a table.
