We were at the mall when my husband mentioned he'd like to try the Mexican restaurant instead of the food court. We were greeted immediately and it was very obvious they were under remodeling. The menu was diverse and had some new, interesting items I'd like to try on my return. First of all they served chips and salsa- the... More

We were surprised at how much food as on our plates when we ordered our dinner. The surprise was nice. Then we were surprised at how fresh all the vegetables were. Why surprised? Because this is a cut above the usual but the price was not. I had a Grande fajita and the shrimp were plentiful, large - not popcorn... More

We were greeted and seated promptly, which is nice. The food was very good. I had unsweet iced tea, which tasted old (I'm picky about stuff like that). The restaurant was undergoing renovations, so the atmosphere was not as nice as the food. I'm not sure we ate $80 worth of food, though!

We came in late, but were seated and served very well. Our food was very good. Guacamole was excellent. Our Carne Asada was excellent as well. The music was a little loud, but tolerable. We will return.

I have visited here with family and friends and I have never been disappointed. The service has always been fast and courteous. Did I mention the Salsa? I love their salsa!

Hadn't been in a while and was surprised to see a completely new menu. Lots of things not on the typical generic Mexican place. A little more expensive, but not much.

Loved the patio and our server had great recommendations. Their salsa is really good and the lunch specials hit the spot.
