“OMG it's good!”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

Fajita meal is great! I got the combo and the beef and chicken pieces were huge. Lots of salsa and they do not skimp on it! Margarita was one of the best ever.

“Not EVEN okay.”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

We must have been there on a really bad day. I can't believe all the good reviews this place has been given. As someone else stated the queso was absolutely disgusting, cold and stringy and unedible. The salsa is bland, not even a small kick to it. The food quality is not equal to the prices. Service okay but not very friendly or welcoming. The only good thing was the building and decor. Will not be giving this place a second chance.

Super mexican foods, steaks and quail. Frozen margaritas are awesome! Nothing in the area compares or comes close!

“Pleasantly surprised!!!!”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

Grilled lunch fish was AMAZING!!!!! We will definitely be back. We eat authentic Mexican food frequently and this place is one of the best. We dont live here but it's definitely worth the stop.

Tortilla soup is also awesome!
