I have traveled a lot and I must say I was impressed with the quality of the service and the food. The manager is on the floor ensuring her customers get the best service possible, the food was hot and tasty, portions were good and there was no extra charge for asking for the "spicy" sauce for the chips. The chips were crispy and non-greasy, the Combination Fajita were cooked properly and the portions of rice/wacamole/pico de gallo and sour cream that came with them where well proportioned to the meal. The staff was extra friendly and the atmosphere was very comfortable with varied Spanish music on the background from Rancheras to Salsa and others.

It's cheap--- food is OK my second favorite Mexican restaurant in the city---about after 8 visits---again, its very reasonable (and close)--never has the salsa, ice tea, chips ever been empty for more than a minute no matter how busy the place is--so it's not a fluke. I won't go on and raving about the food although I have never bad meal there---it good review is all about great service and feeling welcome.

The salsa was basically a bowl of tomato paste. If you ask for tea, they assume you want sweet tea. Chips are good, warm and crispy, not greasy. Seriously; what respectable Mexican resteraunt doesn't have Charro beans?? The fajitas were disappointing. I ordered beef and chicken fajitas, 3 oz of beef, chewy and overcooked. 3 oz of chicken. 2 tacos for $12.

The food is really good, pretty cheap and flavorful with good portions. I always get the steak carbones which is the fajita meat already rolled into 3 flour tortillas. Cheese dip is good too. What else do you need in a Mexican restaurant . . . oh ya, good cold beer and frozen margs! They have that too!

This has to be my favorite Mexican restaurant in Birmingham. The atmosphere is colorful and friendly. The menu, prices, and portions are comparable to most other Mexican restaurants around town. The food is not overly spiced (AKA-more bland and less seasoned meats), the salsa and cheese dip are great, and the chips are fresh. All of this would be enough to make it a great restaurant, but where this place shines is in their service. I have never waited more than 10 minutes for a table, and I think that time was on cinco de mayo. As soon as you are seated, chips and salsa are brought to the table. The chips AND salsa are refilled if needed, and your tea glass is never less than half full.

There are other Mexican restaurants that have nicer, newer buildings, or have "more authentic" Mexican food, or charge more for less food. But, if you want great food with the best service this is the place. 5 out of 5!
