I know most people come for a rather large alcoholic beverage (which I hear is delicious) but I just like to eat the most delicious chips and salsa and watch everyone get loud and funny 😆. I recently brought extend family from Kentucky here and...More

The food was ok, we ordered the beef fajitas to split, the meat was a little tough and the veggies far out numbered the meat. It only came with 2 very small tortillas. The chips are also $1 for every basket after your first. We...More

My rating is not a bad thing, it's my own assessment. The food is fine, but it doesn't "wow" me as it apparently does for other. I notice that each "Mexican" restaurant I go to has their own spin or flair on their menu. Nothing...More

The service is outstanding with welcoming host and friendly servers. Food is always good with outstanding chips and salsa and chili verde. Ground beef burritos are the best. Family friendly but often uncomfortably noisy. Trending toward a bar with a rowdy crowd Thur - Sat.

Atmosphere is loud with drunk people who apparently are too wasted to taste their overpriced meals. Food is not very pleasant. Go elsewhere for decent Mexican food.

Their drink menu is outstanding! So many choices and they are huge. They have a white sauce you can get on your enchilda or smothered burrito. This is what got me hooked many years and ago, and keeps me coming back. Their service is also...More
