“Average food and service”
Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

Went to get lunch with some friends today. Food and service were average. The best part was the chips and salsa. They were very good! The chicken enchilada with cheese was pretty good. I think there are some better "authentic" Mexican restaurants in the Med City.

“Good Food”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Ate here several times during my stay - it was close to the hotel and the prices were good. The food was good, but the $1.99 margharitas were watery and the service was inconsistent.

“Best chips and salsa!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Chips and salsa are great, food was ok. Disappointed that I ordered off the gluten free menu and they brought me flour tortillas andsourcream that I asked to leave off. In general place doesn't seem very clean which may be in part to needing updating.

“bad, but could be worse.”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

The food is cold, all though the plate is hot.
The side orders where included with the
main course but 1 was on the bill and the other one, I'm still waiting for.
One of the sideorder was soup and this was cold either.
There was no knife, so I had to ask for it.
At the end only the beer was good.

Think they need (quick assp) to improve them self.
