Margaritas are good but it goes down from there. I must admit I do love good Mexican food. I have had Mexican food in Mexico, California, Arizona, Texas, New York... And others so I consider myself a fairly good reviewer. This chain serves average Mexican...More

I come here often with my family. I love the chips and salsa. I also like the taco salad and my daughter loves the kid nachos. The salsa has a bit of a spice which we like too. Staff is always friendly and very nice.

Took the family here to celebrate grandsons birthday. The guacamole was disappointing, needed more lime juice & cilantro, chips are large, fried and greasy. I had the chicken tortilla soup, it was tasteless and the chicken enchiladas were only average. Service was slow, but friendly.

This is truly a family restaurant and it comes with a lot of commotion. Tables are close together and it gets a little noisy. But I like the food and it’s worth it even if you like a quiet dinner. They’re sour cream enchiladas remind...More

Every day at 8 a.m., we start chopping veggies, soaking beans, and prepping our mesquite-fired grill. Not because we have to, but because we believe in delicious flavors made-to-order, from hand-rolled enchiladas to our sizzling fajitas to guacamole made right at your table. Everything pairs nicely with a grande margarita, and of course, enjoy the always endless chips and salsa.
