This was our second time. The food is authentic, fast, and yummy. I don't remember what we had but it was Mexican, duh. They have the Spanish channel on the TV and nice Mexican decor. A big takeout clientele.

Stopped here to eat as we were in the area and my daughter wanted Mexican. The place wasn’t busy at all until we got there. Then it slowly filled to almost capacity by the time we got our meal. Busy busy busy !!! The servers...were running around like crazy !! We ordered steak fajitas, beef tacos and tacos Diablo. All were fantastic! Really great flavor and presentation. Oh, and the chips and salsa were to DIE for !!!More

Thought it would be a great treat for lunch with the co-workers. They raved about the cheese dip, which we ordered and did not receive. Once food arrived was cold, messy and lacked any kind of flavor. I've had microwavable dinners better. The taco was...mushy and did not hold together. I would not recommend you waste your money or time. Normally i don't write reviews but with my hard earned money involved i had to!More

I don't like to bash restaurants for curbside pick up during this craziness of COVID19 especially on Cinco de Mayo - BUT when people are waiting 3 + hours and there is absolutely no organization, (no one to take names so they would stop cooking...and bringing out food for people that gave up and left) that is BAD business.More

From the onset, we saw by the line of waiting people that this was an understaffed and primarily a take-out establishment. It took about 15 minutes to get served, and one of the patrons said they waited well-over that to pick up an order that...had been phoned in. The food was OK, and the prices fair, but we will not be back.More

I really didn't have high expectations for Mexican food here in central New York, but WOW was I pleasantly surprised by the quality, quantity and price here. The food was delicious, although not particularly fancy - just good, honest, delicious food. The serving sizes were...adequate and the free chips were so good, I had to move the basket away from my son before he ate the entire basket. The service was friendly and made me feel like I was a friend. Would definitely come back here, next road trip.More

With the Camillus store closed I trekked out to the Liverpool location. Same great food and prices. Not all that far either, out by Heids. It was an off time when I was there, about 3 so had the place to ourselves. By far the...best nachos and salsa. I try to order something different every time, making my way down through the combination dinners. Have yet to find something I didn't like or wasn't tasty. Close your eyes, pick something, you'll love it.More
