The restaurant is beautiful inside, clean and modern. The wait staff are very good at their jobs, and very efficient. The prices are middle of the street, priced fairly in my opinion, but the food is just so so, not very good, but can't say it really sucked. Except for the Guacamole it really DID suck, they made it with mayo, and more mayo than avocado if I may say so. We didn't eat this bowl of green mayo. The mole sauce was obviously factory made and was very sweet. It is very difficult to get good Mexican food I this small town.

First opened as a Panera Bread, then an Asian Fusion restaurant and now Mexican. This place has a ways to go, There were still neon signs in the windows advertizing Japanese Sapparo beer as well as signs in the parking lot with name of previous restaurant. As we have dined at the previous Fusion restaurant we are familiar with that decor, the only change was some sombreros tossed about and the hostess was in traditional Mexican garb. My wife enjoys Chile rellenos and she ordered ala carte even though they were only offered as part of a combo. We also order a combo starter package with included a few of each appetizers. The wait staff we encounter were superb courteous, fast and easy to talk to. The beer we order was cold. When the rellenos we ordered were served we found they were wrapped in a tortilla and the cheese inside the pepper (not Pablano) was cold. The starter combo was very good. and I would return for another visit if only (what I assume) was the owner/partner/manager doesn't continue to walk around talking to guest in shorts and a T shirt. It shows a lack of respect to his customers
