Being from Canada I can't speak to the authenticity of the Mexican food, but we eat here every time we visit Fargo and have never been disappointed. The food is plentiful and reasonably priced. The staff are very friendly and the wait service is fast and efficient.It fills up fast so go early(before 6).

The variety of food is very good. The taste is also great. Even though called Mexican its too americanized to be truely authentic. The food and staff are always great, especially on your birthday when your meal is free..

Only stopped for appetizer & drinks, but these happy hour margaritas were poor quality, weak and overpriced

Excellent restaurant. The parking lot is large and the first time we went there it was almost completely full. I wasn't sure if it was even worth going in. When we did there was lots of seating left, cook time was reasonable and the food was great.

Was looking forward to eating here again on my vacation home. I had not been here in over 4 years. Kind of disappointed I must say. Meet some high school friends here for dinner. The place hadn't changed decor wise, but the food has slipped. It was kind of blah. Not much flavor or freshness. The company I had made... More

Love the atmosphere and decor here! Nice to just sit and relax. While we appreciate the free chips and salsa, we must say the flavor of the tortilla chips has changed since our last visit. Can't put our finger on it, but not for the better. The salsa remains tasty and just a little spicy. The food is ALWAYS delicious... More
