This place was busy even at an odd time of day. Seated me quickly. The appetizer I got was wonderful (chorizo & cheese with chips). It was my favorite part of the whole meal. My waiter was so busy. He did a good job but hopefully they were just short staffed. He even cleared & cleaned every one of his... More

I knew we had a winner when the lot was full on a weeknight for dinner. Still promptly seated, quick service, and a tasty and filling meal.

We called in to reserve a group of 20. The service was great. The food was excellent and we all got our food at the same time. Would recommend it to everyone.

The service was friendly and prompt. The food was average for a Mexican restaurant. Prices were good. The guacamole was not made fresh -- a disappointment. We travel in the southwest USA often, so perhaps we expected too much.

We stopped for a late lunch and we're glad we did. My husband had shrimp quesadilla that was loaded with shrimp. I had a mix of things and everything was very good. Service fast and friendly. Excellent drinks. Will go back for sure!

On a two week road trip, my husband and I were sick of fast food (drive-thru kind), and craving Mexican, we searched and decided on this Restraunt. Not authentic, nothing to rave about, but it was okay- better than any drive thru. We ordered the "pollo a la parilla". The chicken was not charbroiled as described, but good and the... More

I've had supper here and now lunch; both were very good experiences! The restaurant was fairly busy both visits but no waiting. The food was excellently prepared and served very timely. Acceptable prices. I was most impressed with my friendly and attentive waitress!!

Food was average Mexican food. Margaritas okay. Ambience was not inviting. Cleaning supplies all over the place. Felt like the waitress just wanted to get us our food and get out. Would not recommend. Have been to far better Mexican restaurants before. Heard from our hotel receptionist that the Mexican place right next to this restaurant (attached to the strip... More
