Good service, good, consistent food. Basically what you would expect from a chain restaurant. This is a regular stop for us. Nothing exciting, just consistently good.

“Service was great, food was average”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

Service was top notch, very attentive and quick. Food wasn't bad, but was somewhat bland. Would go again, but wouldn't be my first choice.

“We are regulars”
Reviewed November 20, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This location has generally good service and consistent food. The prices are fair, especially considering the portion sizes. We have not had a bad experience. Be careful about going on your birthday, they will go all out ; )

“WHOOOLY GUAC”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

While the Made to order quac, at your table is quite pricey, its yummy. I recommend starting with it. The chips are homemade also, they are not GREASY at all. So for those of us who feel the need to watch our waistlines, indulge a little. Portions are Large and food is good. The black beans are the best I've had, so I recommend that for a side. I had the salmon tacos and they were very good.

“FRESH MADE TORTILLAS....MMMMMMM”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Love this as a semi traditional Mexican restraint. The food is authentic and very well presented and the drinks are incredible. The corn pudding stuff that they put on the side of every meal is wonderful and if not given with your meal, should be asked for.
