Reviewed July 12, 2013

I loved the food, my husband thought it was just ok. The chips and salsa were very good. The enchiladas were tasty and the shredded beef was flavored just right. I thought it was a little pricey but at least the food tastes great. He had the flan and it was about the best I have ever tasted, very decadent. Very relaxing atmosphere, you almost don't want to leave.

“Mixed reviews”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

I read the reviews on TripAdvisor and had some reservations about the restaurant, but my husband had his heart set on it since he'd been there with friends years ago. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The waitress took our drink order. The chips and salsa were good, but the Margarita Magnifico that I had great hopes for was watery. For the prices, the food was only so-so. I had to add salsa to both the rice and beans to give them any taste. The atmosphere was comfortable and our waitress was a delight, but we won't be back for the food.

“Terrific dinner”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

I think this restaurant is a chain which we usually avoid when on vacation. However our last night we decided to try it anyway because of the area we were in. We were not disappointed. Two of us had Beef burritos with mushaka (sp?) beef. Wonderful. My husband had a Chile Rejenos which he loved. The waitress was wonderful and steered us correctly to good meals. The manager came by twice and was very cordial.
