If you are looking purely for cheap tex-mex, I would recommend this place. Don't expect anything special as you won't get it. But for a quick lunch or dinner with all the regular tex-mex meals where you can actually avoiding having to cook for yourself...at a great price, this is a good option.More

I really loved their green salsa and chips they put on the table when we arrived. I ordered the beef falutas because I don't eat seafood. I thought they were decent, but not as great as the salsa. Another thing I wasn't thrilled with was...the jalapano poppers had crab in it, but that's not how it was descirbed on the menu. So I bite into one thinking it was only cheese but then I got a big chunk of crab.More

Let me preface this....this is a seafood restruant and I did NOT order seafood. Therefore, your experience may differ. However, I did order the nightly special, which in this case was enchiladas. I am not really sure how you could mess up enchiladas, especially all...you can eat ones...... We arrived early evening. Although there seemed to be a few cars in the parking lot, the place was pretty much empty. This is a large space so it felt really empty. There is a bar to the side so a couple of people were there and there was one other family in the dining area. The special of the evening was enchiladas so I ordered cheese ones and my husband ordered beef ones...My first bite was good....the cheese was real cheese, not cheese sauce. The second bite and several others and the experience went downhill. The dish was so salty it was unedible. Although my husband ordered a different type of enchiladas, his was too salty as well. The place was empty and it was difficult to get the waitress' attention. When I complained about the food, she just looked at us and put the tab on the table. We won't return.More
