Went there after a very long drive. The staff had a great sense of humor and was joking with us from the minute we sat down. Much needed after a long day of driving. The food was great and we had a pitcher of margaritas that were wonderful. Can't say enough about the great service!

Not the worst Mexican food I've ever had, but nowhere near the best. Very Americanized and prefrozen grocery store taste. Nothing here appeared to be homemade or fresh. No cilantro or lime in any of the dishes which is my definition of good Mexican.

The food is Americanized for sure and is average....But, they do have really good Fajitas! I go there just for those. The staff is friendly and courteous.

If you don't want to drive to the city and want some of the best Mexican food around, I can highly recommend this place. The waitstaff is attentive and courteous. The food is authentic and off the charts, well managed.

Not what I think of a true Mexican fare......It has been Americanized too much! In my opinion the best thing on the menu to order are the Fajitas. Sometimes the rice is too dry and the "refried" beans too runny! But, to give it it's due the place is always clean and the staff always friendly!
