“Better Mex is found elsewhere”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

Very "industrial"-type tex mex. The chips and salsa are great, but the sauces and meats are heavy, poorly seasoned and left something to be desired. If you are hankering for good mexican, go elsewhere my friend.

“Food is pretty good”
Reviewed July 19, 2011

The food is pretty good. Not authentic Mexican, but a nice variation. Bar area is a nice place to eat if the dining area is full (it isn't too loud.) The servers are very attentive. Nice outdoor area. Looks out on the parking lot, but it is outdoors. I enjoy their chips and salsa and get extra. The spinach cheese dip is a nice appetizer.
