They have much of the typical tex-mex fare that is standard in most chain types of restaurants found in the US and Canada, but lack many of the ingredients required to actually make Mexican food or even Cal-Mex or Tex-Mex. To be fair, they make do with what their local distributors can supply, but the food falls flat and is generally bland all the same. They do have an option for a side of jalapenos since salt is the major seasoning used, but it's about $5 and they are canned (note: NOT worth the $$$ unless you think mild green chilies are spicy since these were probably hanging around for a while). Also, don't expect more than 4-6 tortillas in their "Fajitas para dois", and there's a steep charge for additional tortillas.

The staff is mostly friendly, and they have a Mariachi band most nights, but it feels more tourist trap than actual restaurant since the experience takes much more of a focus than the food. If going with a group, it's not a bad place, but there's much better alternatives in the neighborhood.

Great place for a night out with friends, great ambience and good Mexican food. A place to hangout in downtown.
