“love the margarita's as well as the food”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We returned here for Mother's Day. I, of course, got a margarita, but not the 40oz. which I've ordered before. They bring out the chips, and salsa like every Mexican restaurant does, and they will bring out more, if you request it. I had the enchilada's, and my hubby ordered the fajitas. The food is fresh, hot, and tasty. I think our bill minus the alcohol was around $21, so, not bad. Although we don't eat Mexican too often, we do enjoy eating here. I would recommend it to any traveler, or local. It's in walking distance to a couple hotel chains, so it's convenient for someone staying overnight. By the way, the 40 oz. Margarita is around $12.00.

“Surprised”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Checked in to hotel late and just went to the closest restaurant available. Wow, what a surprise. This place was great. The food was fresh and portions plentiful. Our server was fantastic. If you are anywhere close to this place, you have to give it a try. You won't regret it.

“Poisoned”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Food poisoned from here twice. Yes, shame on me for coming back. Six of us at a table. Five out of six had sour cream and turned violently ill. Not a hard problem to deduce.
