I took my mother and husband here for lunch one Saturday afternoon and we were pleasantly surprised by the place. When you walk in, you think of a remodeled/ugraded warehouse with high celings and a very outgoing atmosphere which is colorfully decorated. We waited briefly for a booth, but in the meantime we were able to watch them make their famous flour tortillas on the spot, which was pretty cool. Once we were seated, our litte server guy greeted us and took our drink orders. He was pretty awkward, but it was kind of cute, like highschool awkward; my husband kept joking that he was flirting with me. Due to a pretty hefty hangover, I ordered a bloodymary, which was not the best, but considering we were in a mexican joint where a magarita would have better suited the occasion , not all that bad. We also ordered a queso sampler which came with the white queso, guacamole, beans with cheese another cheese with pico de gallo in it which was AWESOME, my favorite part of that is that it is served with cut up triangles of flour tortillas. I would have been just fine with that as my meal!! Our food arrived very quickly; all of us had ordered enchiladas of one sort or another, and they all tasted delicious. Don't forget to check out the telephone pole that sits in the middle of the restaurant that took us half the meal to finally see, which according to our server, provides all the electricity to the place. Gotta check it out for yourself!!

The food is very good and the prices are reasonable. The margaritas are perfect. Normally, with those two things, I would give a great review but...

The staff has been "new" all four times I've been there. I mean getting a drink refilled or getting an appetizer before the entre is a long shot at best. Forget about special orders. One time the waitress told me halfway through the meal she was going for a smoke and never showed up again. That's professional. Another time I got the free chips that are supposed to come first with the bill.

I'm going at dinner time on weekdays. Maybe they have better staff at other hours. Maybe they just need to pay their wait staff an extra buck an hour. Or maybe I've been unlucky all four times.

I'm actually rooting for this place, they're this close to being a good restaurant. In the mean time I'll go to Jose's Border Cafe.
