“Montezuma got his revenge”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

I probably should have been suspicious when the vast majority of reviews I read on both tripadvisor and Yelp! complimented the margaritas, not the food. My margarita was - in fact - quite good, but the guacamole smelled annoyingly similar to urinal cakes (seriously!), and instead of the hot sizzling skillet I expect when I receive an order of fajitas, mine were a pre-mixed luke warm compost of chicken, onions, and peppers straight from the steam table, served over a sterno can, with no cheese on the side.

“Small place but big taste”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

We have lived here for 2 years and have seen this place around the corner from us often, finally went to try it out and the food was really yummy the margarittas are mixed really well not the watered down junk one can normally get at a resturant like this.. food took a little bit to come out and the waiter was a bit slow getting to us but the place was crazy packed so all things considered it was a good experance. they must do a bangging job with their carry out cause there was a pretty steady line of customers comming in to pick up, i would do this but i would miss out on those great drinks!!! food was verry reasonabley priced my hubby and i ate for around 50$ thats two huge meals and 4 large cocktails most places 50$ is just the bar tab! will dine again!

“Dining here since 1980's”
Reviewed November 16, 2011

Always the best quality food in taste, quantity and value. We measure other Mexican food based on this restaurant. Some come close but never surpass it. We are devoted customers
