“Don't expect miracles”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

This restaurant is very conveniently located if you stay at the Homewood suites hotel but....
I have been there during the "Happy hour" and was disappointed with the quality of the service and the quality of the large margherita which did not have much taste - probably not enough Tequilla. I would have preferred to pay the full price and get the real stuff. The chicken with lemon sauce was okay. I don't think I go there again.

“great chicken”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Not the greatest happy hour in the mall area unless you like margaritas (which were ok and out of a machine). The salsa was great. I had the grande chicken nachos. If you get these, you need to share as they were nothing short of enormous. I felt bad because I only ate about 1/8 of them. The shredded chicken was fabulous-very tasty and moist.The atmosphere was like any other restaurant you go into-nothing fabulous, but comfortable.

“Always good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

If you are in Bloomington, it is a great place for Mexican food. Service is good, only complaint is that it is kind of loud if you are going to chat with friends.

“just so-so”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

after being in the mall all day it was quick and easy , we had eaten there once before on a trip ,food was ok service was also ok ,seamed a bit understaffed , but our waitress did a decent job cons they need to have something in place to curb the flies maybe its not all the time but when we where there they where terrible kind of a lack luster place you find in every town!

“Late night grub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

I got the chicken fajita's around 10:30pm. It was late and there weren't many options. It was a decent plate of food for some late night grubbing.
