The only reason this review is not a single star is that the jumbo margarita that I had with dinner was very good. On the menu the Chimichanga is flagged with the Aztec Sun icon that is supposed to mean: "My Family Favorite Recipe". When my plate arrived I immediately noticed that the tortillas were NOT deep-fried but since it... More

Our lunch on July 21 was just awful. The chili relleno was so undercooked that the batter was still raw and the chili itself was soggy. Not sure what the meat was in our tacos, but it sure was not shredded beef. The salsa was without even a hit of freshness.

This restaurant has a very large menue. Multiple size and flavor margaritas. Service is good and prompt. Chips and salsa provided while waiting for your order. It is a little pricey but worthwhile.

I cannot even begin to express how disgusting the food is at this particular restaurant. We had 16 people in our party and of those 16 people, there was only 1 that said their meal was "ok". Everyone else agreed it was just gross. The best thing to have here is the margaritas. They are good, huge, and well priced.... More

I've eaten here quite a few times and the food is wonderful. There's never been a wait to get a seat when I've been there and the staff are friendly and fast. I've had several different entrees and everything I've sampled has been wonderful. The chips and salsa are also REALLY good and the prices are REALLY cheap!

My boyfriend and 15 year old daughter stopped in for a Saturday lunch and it was great. Friendly service, clean, and reasonably priced. If we are back in the area we would definitely try again !!!

Had dinner for eight last night ranging in age from 75-13. We had varied palates from loves hot and spicy to only mild please and everyone was very happy. They even provided separate checks! Very clean and not at all noisy even though it was fairly full. Food was hot when it arrived and yummy. No extra charge for chips,... More

My food was pretty good. Complimentary salsa was tasty and had a nice little kick. Service was welcoming at first but painfully slow: after the food was brought to my table the waiter never returned - ever. He was around but he never came back. Duh. I finally went to the counter to see if I could get my bill.... More

The hamburger we ordered for my son who doesn't like tacos was orange. There was orange grease all over the bun and it was flavored like the taco meat. I am guessing they don't wash the grill and just throw the burgers on there. None of ate our food, we walked next door to Applebees. Thank God for Taco Bell.
