The food was very good. Lots of menu selections, even for the kids. The space is small, but we went after lunch so we didn't have to wait to be seated. The staff was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. My only complaint was that there were only two servers and service was a little slower... More

We really enjoyed our meals here. I wanted a tex mex restaurant. This had a Mexican menu I figured it may be close.The food had a little spice, they didn't over do it, I like it spicier. The food is fresh. Staff is very nice bubbly personalities. The space is suiting. Very pleased with our stop here

Readily accessible to hotels near the convention center & downtown hotels. Food & drinks were excellent. Not too hot & spicy. Large menu selection. Chimichanga Loca was great. It has 4 meats in it. Only problem was service was a little slow.

We ate here after another restaurant failed us, I'm SO glad we picked this place. The cheese dip was delicious as was our food! Definitely will be going back there next time we are in town and wanting Mexican food!!!

The restaurant isn't very big, but they had room for our group and provided a good lunch menu with good service. We thought the food was good - typical Tex-Mex, but what we were wanting. Prices ranged about $10 for lunch with tip and tax.

While the waiter tried to be helpful the picante sauces left much to be desired! From the "salsa" that arrived with the chips to the green salsa when we asked if they had something different there was no flavor that was recognizable as Mexican or even latino. When we asked if they had anything else he brought their hot sauce.... More
