For 30 years Friday night has been our historically Mexican night out for food. Being full-time travelers, this means we have sampled Mexican food all across the country. This place is very close to our sisters house, and she recommended it. We were very pleasantly surprised, although it was jam packed , We got seated pretty quickly, the service was... More

The Mexican food is very good. The portions are big and a lot of variety. The Sunday buffet is also very good.

The service is excellent and the food is delicious. It is a great combination of bar and restaurant. Arturo's margarita is the best margarita in town. Maria's tortillas, the poblano corn soup, and the fajitas bear special mention. Do not miss this dining experience.

The food here is always excellent. The shishkabob was tremendous and unexpected at a Mexican restaurant. On weekends they have live music and a dance floor that can be lots of fun!

We visited this restaurant during brunch. They had a buffet that was really good with many options to choose from including breakfast dishes. The top shelf margarita was fantastic as well as the salsa. It was really fresh and tasty. Service was awesome.

I have been to many places around the world. My parents live here in SA and said that this was a good Mexican restaurant. To bad about this place. Salsa was good, chips are a fail. Chilireeno had way to much cheese and breading was not great. This place gave me diarrhea. Haven't had that in years. Unfortunately will never... More

If you think this is a Tex Mex restaurant, you don't know Tex Mex. Yes, there are traditional Tex Mex items on the menu so not to disappoint the Yankees who winter down here, but the menu is a product of a very accomplished chef and his wife. The salmon is the best I've had anywhere. The lamb chops, outstanding.... More
