“A wait for below average Mexican food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

The appearance of the Restaurant belies the food quality. Not great by any measure. We got there fairly late, and still had to wait. When the food came, no one at the table really had anything above average to say, and most called the food out as being below average. At least my Corona was cold...

“good but ...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

food was ok, service was slow but it was busy. Had karaoke the night I was there. Plenty of parking. Be careful if you are in a group as they will add the gratuity without telling you if you break up the bill.

“Great chips and salsa!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

Service was very good. We shared the appetizer combo plate and an order of chicken nachos. The raspberry jalapeno sauce that came on the combo plate was so very tasty. We put it on everything.

Easter Sunday was packed for brunch but the staff, especially management, did a great job. Everything was fresh, and service was great!! Will definitely go back!
