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!!!

Salsa tasted like it was jarred, low end grocery store variety. Chips were ok. Food was mediocre at best. The service was the worst. Server wasn't outright rude, but not very friendly. We needed somethings and made eye contact numerous times, but she kept waiting...More
