I swear I do not know how anyone could give this place anything but 5 stars! We live 5 minutes away so it's great to order take out on those busy nights. We have a toddler and even he loves their food! They always pay special attention to him when we go in and eat. He always gets his food... More

Our server was Acquillae...sure I misspelled that . We have had him before and are so grateful when we get him again. Have to admit, we wait awhile for a server before we can order drinks and/or food. This is good Mexican food. The young lady that refills chips and salsa is so cheerful and works hard. This is my...

My sisters and I stopped in hoping to have a few drinks. The bar was busy and packed and there were a few open seats but obviously taken because there were drinks on the bar. The bartender did not say hello or asked us what we would like to drink but all we got was a "these seats are taken"... More

Salsa and chips were just ok. My daughter ordered a burrito and to our chagrin it was served open on both ends. It was just meat, no veggies or cheese. When I told them that it was not a burrito by any stretch of the imagination they argued with me that it was a burrito. I guess the customer isn't... More

The service here is superfast around lunch time. The service is always good and the food is authentic. The chips and salsa they give you as an appetizer are delicious. Prices are very reasonable and they have a good selection of foods.

We eat here frequently and haven't had a bad dish. Its great if there are celiac in your group, and is a go to for when we want to eat out because they have many great gluten free options. The salsa, chips, and cheese dip are very good! Most of the servers are amazing. We got a poor server once,... More

Stopped in here on a Monday night during a business trip to town. Was recommended by some locals. Had the pork taco special which was decent but not the large portions that were touted in other reviews. Price was fine it was $10 +3 dollars for an ice tea. Chips and salsa are OK but definitely out of the box.... More

This might be a newer restaurant as the last time I was through two years ago this "strip mall" didn't exist and neither did the gas station next to it!
