Been a couple of times. It's fine for Tex mex but there is better Mexican food restaurants out there. Such as Ninfa's.

First time visiting Texas and popped in to have Tex-Mex food. Place was warm and welcoming, great customer service, wonderful food. Yum Yum! Portions were pretty generous and flavours were very nice. They do great Margharitas also.
