My wife and I stumbled upon this place one evening...and after seeing some of the mixed reviews I was hesitant. However, upon arriving they had a decent crowd (it was around 12:30 or so) and we were greeted immediately. The establishment was clean and the...music playing wasn't too loud. The chips tasted freshly made and had a nice crunch and the salsa was good (I could have used a little more spice, but my wife said it was perfect so that's more of matter of preference). I ordered the Chicken Fundido and my wife ordered the Chicken Guadalajara. The food came out in a timely manner and we both found our food to be very well seasoned and very tasty! Our waitress was really nice and personable and made sure we were well taken care of (and our drinks never got below half full which is a major plus in my book). We found out this place hadn't been open a full year and was also under new management. The manager came out and spoke to us momentarily to make sure that we had a good experience. She was very nice, charismatic, and it was clear both she and our server took pride in their work. I recommend this hidden gem and will most definitely be back!More

Walked in and my shoes were sticking to the floor. I went to the restroom before being seated because I was traveling and on the way there was a storage room that was disorganized and looked into the kitchen that looked absolutely dusty and gross...when arriving to the toilets neither one had been cleaned it seemed for days the toilet bowels were filled with poo and crud that I immediately turned around to warn my family we will not be eating here.More

Just visiting MS but ran across this place. Food was fresh, margaritas was great. Hostess was friendly and polite. I give them 4 stars as they just open 6 months ago says the hostess. But the food was great and so was the atmosphere.

The food wasn’t good. Chips and salsa was even worse. Went for the bottomless mimosas and the server knew nothing about the promotion only to find mold in my drink 3 glass later. The server was nice and apologized for the inconvenience and discounted the...drinks.More

Good food and nice service, but unfortunately I had a very bad experience with the dishonest management. After our dinner at El Centro, there was a technical problem with the electronic payment system, which caused a double payment of our check. Normally this would be...no problem to me as such, when correctly reimbursed. But as we were travelling, I only noticed this double payment 2 days later, being already far out of town. When contacting the staff, initially they seemed cooperative, but when they discovered we were European tourists, the communication (on facebook/telephone) became rigid and they gave us everytime new excuses for not having reimbursed the double payment (just $20!!). It was only after 3 months, when I told the El Centro management that I would take this case a step further, by asking my family living near Jackson to report this theft to the police, that suddenly the refunding seemed to be a piece of cake! (I received the reimbursement 2 days after this message on my bank account) and suddenly there were excuses for the delay of THREE MONTHS!! I call this dishonest management and will never go back there again!More
