Good Mexican food, nice atmosphere, romantic, always full. Try the classic margarita and the fried ice cream. Good service, fast and nice with kids.

Food was good and I loved the Sangria. Always crowded though and you had to wait. Service was just ok.

The food was very good and despite the very busy weekend (Father's Day), the service was quick and friendly. We actually ate there 3 times in 5 days. Machaca and Chili Colorado were soooo good !!! Margaritas could use a better recipe tho'....we all sent ours back.

Food was not tasty at all but service was good. It was inexpensive and had a big selection but just did not taste authentic mexican.

Margarita was fantastic. Don't know how much it cost, no prices on menu, but darned good.
Crowded, noisy, sticky tables, inattentive servers, stale chips, mediocre desserts.

Convenient location, which probably accounts for the long wait and crowds, but honestly we get better food back home from Alberto's drive thru. Come for the margaritas and the super nice security guy at the door.
