Your basic Mexican food place. Decor is typical, area was all very clean. Chips and salsa were fresh, each of our entrees were good. Will definitely be back.

So here is the deal. This is a Mexican Restaurant and the food and decor is pretty much like most Mexican Restaurants. That being said, this was the second year we went here after a day at the races. The chips are hot and fresh, the food is good and the service is fantastic. The drinks are also great. It's... More

This place is fun and the food is great! If you like heat, then ask for the hot salsa - followed promptly by a margarita. The menu is huge so anyone can find a good choice. The atmosphere is very festive, so be ready for a laugh.

Delicious. We ordered from lunch menu, very good, very reasonable price. Beer was nice and cold, both draft and bottle. Service was excellent! Fun atmosphere. Clean restrooms. Would be fun in the summertime to be on the outside patio; then hopefully the fountains would be cleaned up and running (only downside, looked yuk now).

We consider ourselves Mexican food snobs. 😄 We've been to Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California and bar NONE, this is the best Mexican food for your dollar. We've lived here for 23 years and hubby was born and raised here. There are 2 locations and we always go to the Malvern Ave. location. The Central Avenue location is managed differently... More

We had terrific, attentive service but the fajitas were cold. Imagine cold fajitas! The tortilla soup, while tasty, was barely above room temp. Our waitress was terrific, maintaining a great attitude throughout. She wanted to make everything right, but had no time for a return of the order, Who ever heard of cold fajitas?

Shared margaritas and nachos with my mother-in-law for our first visit & we will be back! The green salsa was my favorite.

We stopped by for dinner close to our hotel. The staff is very nice and seated us promptly. The ambiance is lovely and they had a live band playing. The Chairs and tables have beautiful carving decor. The restrooms are clean. They have a full bar. We started with the chips and salsa three different kinds on our table. Our... More
