Very friendly folks and good food. It was good but more than I could eat in one evening. I went during the winter.

Some of the best Mexican food I have had anywhere. This would include Mexico City. Service a little slow but got our food quickly once we ordered.

Family of 7, (all adults) stopped for dinner. Our waiter was fun and on the spot with service. The food was outstanding, but the portion was way too big. (Some might like that.) Overall, great food and great service.

We have had seafood the past 3 nights, so wanted something different tonight. We went to Blue Moon first and there was a 40 minute wait, so we left and were on our way to Food Lion when we saw this Mexican restaurant. We went in and got a table right away. That is the positive part of my review.... More

We try to visit this restaurant once a month or so. Tonight, as always everything was top notch. We were greeted upon arriving by Alex, a young gentleman that's always full of smiles and has one of the best attitudes in the world. All of the servers that have helped us are fantastic. If it's not Alex, it's Danny, Thomas... More

From the time we opened the door, our experience was disappointing. We were greeted by a barefoot young lady--although another with shoes actually took us to our table. While our server was efficient, friendly or enjoyable would not be adjectives that come to mind. On to the food. This was the absolute biggest disappointment. There was no doubt in our... More
