Visited the restaurant as I am new to the area. Wait staff was friendly and efficient in seating us and bringing drinks, chips, and salsa. The meals we ordered were totally forgetful. The guacamole salad was nonexistent. A few shreds of iceberg lettuce and the smallest dollop of guacamole I have ever seen. We were hungry after moving all day,... More

The service was good, but slow-we were not in a hurry though. The sweet tea is way way sweet in a overtly diabetic crisis way. It is good in a half and half mix. The food is good, the cheese is so tasty. The fajitas are good: shrimp and scallop. Scallops were a little overlooked and chewy. The salsa is... More

The one and only time my husband and I went to this restaurant was not a pleasant experience. We got a table fairly quick and after that, we had to wait to get a drink order in...about 10-15 minutes. Once the drink order was placed, the waiter took our food order, we never received our drinks until the food arrived... More

I love Mexican and eat it once a week. My wife and I both enjoy San Jose. Food is alway constantly good. Can't go wrong with the Specialty tacos.

We have had to wait long periods to get service after being seated on several occasions. Do not plan on going back. Food is fair; not worth the long waiting.

Dinner here for 8. Had to sit in the bar and it is a small place and there is no tables in the regular dining area for 8. The food was nothing special. I have never had a Tostada with nothing but ground beef and some melted cheese. Other dishes were okay but I have had better Mexican food at... More

We stopped in here for dinner on a Saturday night and were well pleased with the experience. Nice facility, beautifully decorated with well done murals. The food is very tasty. Comes out hot and quick. I enjoyed my margaritas and found the staff friendly and helpful. Nice stop.

We had seen the good reviews for this place and were visiting Columbia, so we tried it. We were very pleasantly pleased. The decor was nice, the service was good, the portions were plenty to take with us to have a second meal later with the leftovers. I especially liked the salsa with the chips. It was so yummy.
