“Just So-So”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

The food is ok but not authentic Mexican. We ordered the family style fajitas and were not impressed. The pork carnitas were covered in large chunks of fat. The salsa seemed fresh but was missing the roasted taste that distinguishes restaurant salsa from the grocery store stuff. The restaurant is clean and in a convenient location for visitors but they seemed short on staff since we had to wait ten minutes and there were plenty of empty tables. They get a thumbs-up for making a good margarita.

“Been a while”
Reviewed December 19, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The chips and salsa are much better than I remembered it, especially when fresh and hot. The whole family had fun munching on chips. We were all too full to get the fried ice cream, unfortunately. I'm not sure why the kids picked cheese pizza but they loved it (for an adult, it was a little thick for me).

“Horrible visit”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Service was the worst I've had in years. Multiple errors in our food order. Had to ask 3 times for silverware. Kept getting excuses for errors and not a reason.
My party was almost done with their food before I received mine. Asked for the manager twice and never saw anyone. Food was poor quality and quantity. Won't return here again.
