Mexican food, like Chinese, is ubiquitous in this area. But, like Chinese, it is hard to find quality Mexican food that is satisfying. I enjoy the decor, the table set up (cool plates), but am always underwhelmed with the taste of the food.

Normally you get what you get on holidays, especially when you're part of a large group. The entire staff did a great job for my entire family on Mother's Day 2016 for our group of 20+. The servers were attentive and friendly. Everyone's order was correct, served all together and fresh/hot. The whole family had a wonderful meal.

We ate here for a later dinner (close to closing time) after a long day out in the sun. Our waiter wasn't great (screwed up the bill, inattentive, rather short with us) but the food was fantastic and the other wait staff were wonderful! Everything everyone ordered at our table was delicious. They don't skimp on flavor here! Kids meals... More

This is a great Mexican restaurant. The service and food are both good. There is an excellent waiter, I believe his name is Carlos, he will take care of you, one of the best waiters we have ever had. We were there during happy hour time and I got a fabulous drink called Sangria Swirl - it was yummy! All... More
