Mediocre food, slow service, bugs everywhere. Far too expensive for how dirty and cheap the experience felt. Not authentic.

Food was ok, nothing outstanding. No paper towels after I washed my hands. I used toilet paper, it made me worry about whether or not the staff could properly wash their hands. The service was terrible. Took a long time to get our order then...More

There is a reason this place is always packed! Our food (burritos, enchiladas, tampiqena) was excellent, as were the beers and Margaritas! Everything tasted fresh! Salsa & guacamole were to die for! So good!! Awesome service! Very reasonable prices too!

This place was hopping! We waited for about 20 minutes or so until we were seated. There is a take-out window and people can pass by the 'to be seated' line to get to that spot...from the looks of take-out, it took them just as...More

Delicious meals served in a colorful and no-nonsense atmosphere. All four adults in our party ordered a different breakfast burrito, and we all said we'd dine here again. We also took some Tres Leches desserts home, and they were extraordinary. Four of us shared two...More
