“Bad food, bad service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013 via mobile

A jillion Mex places in the area and I ended up here. Service was very understaffed and the wait staff didnt have a clue. Food was brought out piece meal and incomplete. Salad not fresh and food was very poor. Some resembled Mexican style but it was awful. We were a large group and they were not prepared.
Ironicaly....not one Mexican working there that I saw. Probably because they would not serve food of this quality. It was however overpriced but the atmosphere was pleasant. Some have called this TexMex....dont defame the great state of Texas.

“WOW! The best Mexican food i've ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

I can't believe how good the food was. We were on vacation passing through Mississippi and I purchased a Groupon for this place so I didn't know what to expect. The queso was amazing and the chips were seasoned, which was something I was not used to but it was very good. I had chicken enchiladas which were so tender that they just fell apart.

“Not your ordinary mexican food !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

When I looked at the menu, I thought higher prices than your usual mexican restaurant!!! But I was in for a surprise !!! The food was great and upscale for a mexican restaurant. We had a tamale with black beans & goat cheese with an  avocado spread; taco salad with the most amazing dressing!!!
Our waiter, Timothy, was on his toes and very attentive .

“Great Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

Being from Texas we usually don't eat Mexican food out of state, but this place is definitely worth a try. Margaritas are tasty too! Very large menu selection. Have eaten here twice and not been disappointed.

“Not just Tex-mex”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

We went for lunch, service was superior, guacamole and cheese dip are a must!! Setting was comfortable and relaxed.. Lunch menu was short listed but the options were platefuls of food for reasonable $$. We have had supper there months ago and ordered the fajitas for two with the fried cheese... Top notch on that as well!!!
