Bring your earplugs to drown out the 10,000 decibel sports TVs if you are that desperate that you actually think that this is Mexican food and are absolutely committed to want to eat here. The staff wouldn't know a salsa from a salsify, as they look at you like they don't have a clue what you're asking for when you ask for things they've never heard of, like frijoles and pico de gallo (did you people get fired from A&W yesterday?), and when you finally get the way overpriced food you regret that you didn't opt for the MUCH better grub at Taco Bell. You get just about as much filling in an overpriced taco here as you get on the 99c menu there as the Chronic-ally lazy and languid staff here assemble their fillings on your order with tweezers. It's actually a mixed blessing that they're so stingy with the fillings as what you do get is, in a word, YUCK. You can't even drown out the paradoxically hypersalty blandness with hot sauce as you can't find a bottle anywhere! How this place stays in business let alone has a small chain of similar dives is completely inexplicable.

The food was great, but it seemed to take a long time to get to us. Staff was friendly - seemed a bit slow co-ordinating between the kitchen & front.

Had a very long wait time for my food (ordered to-go) Loud TV and music blaring. Caters to the sports crowd but really isn't much to say piositively about the food. Prices- too high for what you get

I go here fairly often, it is very tasty and a good value. Some of the best guacamole in the city.

Sometimes the staff skimp on the fillings, just remind them to add more!

The cleanliness had a lot to be desired. The food was just OK. The soda machine was not working correctly. The TVs were way to loud. The food was just OK. So average it is. This will not become a chronic place to eat.
