The Fajitas Monterey are a unique way to deliver this Tex mex staple. The enchiladas are still among the best we have ever had. The Margaitas are short and pack a punch.

The food was delicious, especially my carbon a relleno. Others at the table enjoyed their signature chicken dish and mole enchiladas.

Thank you for your visit. We are glad you enjoyed your dining experience. Next time try the duck carnitas! Delicious!

This Mexican place is a joke. The salsa was watery and served hot. The pollo Maria specialty has too much soy sauce and you really couldn’t tell if it was more Mexican or Asian. The food was so salty you could barely eat it. The...only decent thing was the queso dip. Service was lacking and the food definitely was to! Stay away!More

After reading all the great reviews from Trip Advisor we drove out of our way to eat some great food. You walk into the restaurant and they proudly display a plaque how they are the top in Trip Advisor reviews. Wow, totally disappointed! I only...had the chips and horrible salsa (had no taste) and talked to the staff about my options for lunch. You can't even get handmade tortillas when you just want 2 tacos separate, only hard shell. I didn't even want to waste money to eat here. I don't know how they rated so high with the reviews?More

Very good and authentic food! The Pollo Maria was great- loved the sauce and the chicken was great. The salsa on the front end of the meal was a little weak, but great other than that.

Always eat here when in town visiting my mom...one of her favorites as well...the food is similar to tex mex....but it ends there. My favorites are the stuff Chili dishes. Prices are not bad bad considering the presentation.

Was excited to try this place, I crave Mexican food and eat it often. I'm here in Irving for three weeks and thought I couldn't go wrong with the #2 Mexican restaurant in Irving. I was wrong. I ordered the Burrito Sante Fe with beef...fajita. It arrived quickly, typical hot plate. But when I cut into it, the inside was luke warm. Red and green sauce were served, neither knocked it out of the park. My salsa was served heated, have never had that before. Not a fan, it tasted like I was dipping my chip in tomato sauce. The highlight was my jalapeno infused tequila margarita. Too many choices in this city to return.More

Lunch specials during weekdays. The selection of Bocaditos, Chimichangas, Nachos, Santa Fe, Poblano, Tex Mex is great. You also can create your own tex-mex combo. The salsa is very good. It is hard not to ask for a second serving of chips. Very nice ambiance....Saw several families with kids behaving well. Prices are reasonable for the quality. Enjoyed the mural on the featured wall!More
