Went for Father's Day dinner and very disappointed. Whatever you order on the combinations it is all the same. You cannot substitute and get crummy refried beans and whatever you ordered heavily sprinkled with cheese on a large ceramic platter that has been blow-torched and it overwhelms any taste of whatever you ordered. Would not recommend. Also, beer is served... More

Fast Service. Great food. Great value for lunch. Always a lunch special and different dinner special as well as a drink special. the chips are very good, not greasy. I prefer mild salsa and this one has some body. Most other places serve little more than red water.

My family and I have eaten on many occasions and I've always been pleased with my meal. Service is prompt. The portions are very good. Prices are reasonable and the food is good. This is not high end dining but it's decent tex mex food. I'll keep returning.

Visited on a Saturday night. The restaurant was not very busy so our food came fairly quickly. The server never came back to check on us. They give you more rice and beans than the actual meal. So for the price, the portions were small. Also, be aware that they give you one basket of chips, and you are charged... More

Food was ok, service was poor. Lots of friends and or family hanging out and socializing while we waited. Had been a while since our last visit and the establishment needs a good cleaning and overall refresh, as the tables and chairs are showing age and abuse. Likely will not return.

This is "American" Mexican food as far as I am concerned. My wife had a chicken tostada and said the chicken tasted like boiled chicken, completely flavorless. My brother had chili verde enchiladas and I had beef enchiladas; again, both had ground beef and had very little spice. Honestly, we can make Mexican foods at home that have far more... More

My husband and I took our daughter to eat lunch here. My daughter enjoyed the kids taco plate. I ordered a margarita and it was so sweet and no alcohol. My husband and I got burritos. They were OK. The thing that got me was they charged for a second basket of chips and salsa. So when my food came... More

Stopped in Saturday night for dinner after a referral by a local. The tableside guacamole Was excellent. The vegetable burrito was as large as it was good. While I shared, there was more than enough for two. Service was friendly and attentive.
