“A great restaurant at a good price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

The ambiance is great with Mexican pottery and designs on the walls.The service was quick and efficient and friendly.The food was plentiful and very good and the price is reasonable.The place is a little small and it can get overwhelmed with people fast ,but all things considered this is a great restaurant.Goo Mexican food at a fair price!!

“Terrible! Misrepresenting Tex Mex”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

Stopped in for a late lunch, hoping for spicy Tex Mex. few people there on a Wednesday. Placed my order. Server sort of sheepishly said, we're out of chips today. WHAT? How could a Tex Mex restaurant be out of chips? There are only two of us waiters today. So, do you make them? Yes.

Waiting for my food to come... long waiting, especially without chips, i noticed at least 4 different servers... they nearly outnumbered the customers by this time in the afternoon... but no chips. In a Tex Mex restaurant.

Food finally came. barely luke warm, no spicy seasoning, no server to ask to bring hot sauce or anything.

I'll not return.

“Great Service, Great Food, Great Choice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

I have been there many times before and have always enjoyed it. This time around I noticed how attentive the staff was how great the service was as well as the food. I would recommend to anyone in the Miami Lakes area be it for before the movies or just for a quick dinner with friends or family

“Good food but very slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

The food itself is very good but the restaurant was not very busy at all when we arrived and it took about 10 minutes for someone to come and seat us. Once we were seated, it took quite a while for the waitress to greet us but she was very friendly once she did. Our food came out at different times so my husband was half done with his meal once I was able to start mine. Would probably not go back. Had a great 2 for 1 happy hour!
