I had been with my family for lunch but I was disappointed that they did not have Guac (Strange for a mexican restaurant not to have one). Also, the burrito bowl did not have black beans, peppers, tomatoes, corn etc but it was just chicken and cheese. When asked for black beans, he actually charged me extra for it. So,... More

For starters, the chips and cheese dip were great. I ordered the combo 20 and it was the best chile relleno I have had in years!! Our waitress was on target as well. I would definitely try it out.

Good customer service but lacked important food that a Mexican restaurant should have that is guacamole. They also didn't have few Margaritas. In terms of infrastructure, one of the chairs that my friend was on was chipped and while trying to sit on it, she got hurt. Staff is friendly but these folks can improve on few things.

We did not think the food was very good and the service was slow. Waitress kept forgetting everything.

The waiter took forever to ask about drinks or an order. They were not very friendly and only checked on us once. Actually I wasn't sure if he was the waiter or not because we had four different people doing tasks. Service was very poor and was not that busy. The food was okay.

We eat here about once a month, and the food is good. The restaurant stays quite busy at times service is haphazard. Prices are very reasonable.

We visited this restaurant during a long w-end visiting Skyline Drive! This place has some mixed reviews on Yelp and I was thinking our experience could go either way! So, yes the building used to be a McDonalds, but thats okay. The night we went (a Friday) it was busy and by the time we were leaving there were a... More

Enjoyed dinner. The chipotle shrimp had a good bite to it. Try it. The California burrito was good but not spicy enough. Should serve lettuce and tomatoes with it too. Nice atmosphere. Fair salsa.

Despite reading mediocre reviews, we were in the mood for Mexican food, and this restaurant had a diverse menu online, so we figured we'd give it a try. We regularly eat authentic Mexican food (not Taco Bell!), so given the reviews, we had minimal expectations. Our visit was during the height of dinner time on a Monday night. Upon arrival,... More
