Friendly, efficient staff which is a plus. Had to ask for a salsa with more kick since they one they brought out tasted like pureed tomatoes. The spicier one had a ways to go before it could be considered spicy. The fish tacos were served with a corn tortilla which gets props. They were flavorful and I would order them... More

We have eaten at this restaurant many times and always enjoy the food. The service is also excellent. I can't say anything bad about this place. Visit and judge for yourself.

Food is good; Never any complaints. Must prep every dish ahead; if you want to relax and have a dirnk and chips, don't order. Food will be at your table in 6 minute

Over-priced food, horrible service. Never again! I'm in shock of all the great reviews about this place. This isn't real Mexican food at all!

Our "go to" Mexican restaurant. Love the guacamole cart! Every dish we have had has always been yummy. The staff has always been super friendly as well. No complaints here!

The food is good and the staff is friendly. They have wifi and they'll tune the TV to your favorite ball game if you ask.

Salsa was ok, hot salsa was a joke. Get more flavor from a spicy v8. Got a pork dish plate was made up 50% retried beans. 40% rice, and 9% pork. Beer prices are pretty good. From my first impressions on this place, I wouldn't drive out of my way to get here.

Great service and great food. They have many vegetarian and vegan options and I've never been disappointed (and I've been going here since they opened years ago). The fajitas are fantastic here.

Always speedy and always yummy. Our family loves it here. The owners are sweet and so are the employees. Michelle was my favorite. And it is right off of the highway next to Walmart so anyone travelling craving mexican on 40, you can bet on this place satisfying your needs.
