We selected this restaurant based on prior reviews. We should have gone ANYWHERE else. The service was terrible. I asked for a different type of sauce on my order and was told about another restaurant in another city that had that but not here. We had to ask for our beverages FOUR times before they were finally provided after we... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by the locals. I went there to get a take out order and they were very, very busy. Which was actually a good sign. I placed my order, and for as busy as they were, had a really short wait. The staff was very pleasant and my meal was great. I will be back... More

Great Mexican food of all kinds, casual indoors or patio, solid service make us return often when we're in the mood for a delicious Mexican meal. Our office often schedules special events here, because everyone finds food they like, and parking is plentiful.

The service is always prompt and polite. The food is served quickly and comes out hot. I like the style of rice and beans they provide with many... More

Mexican food is usually about the same, from place to place, but I wasn't wild about this restaurant. The chips were not very good and the salsa boring. The tomato on my salad was almost white. I tend to judge a place down if they don't care enough to find red tomatoes, particularly when it is tomato season! If they... More
