Reviewed January 11, 2014

Have eaten at other locations as well. The buffet was good. Service was good for a Saturday afternoon. Place was busier after 1pm.

“Fantastic food”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Large restaurant with charming Mexican flavor - almost to the point of authentic. Food was the best Mexican we have had. Ordered Chicken & Sour Cream Enchilada and Shrimp Fajitas. The Cadillac Margarita was delicious. Would definitely recommend. Service was very good and friendly.

“Very Mexican”
Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

Authentic and delicious. We have mostly Tex-Mex in Louisiana, so this was a real treat. Service was excellent. Very quick service and great Margaritas.

“Terrible service”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Very bad management, on three trips they never have enough servers, never brought us refills of water and last time we had a coupon that they didn't accept even though it was valid. The manager argued over $10! We paid the $10 and they lost a customer.
