“Great Food”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

This restaurant features a delicious array of Mexican-American food. The ambiance is fun and attractive to all ages. Arrive early, no peak times (e.g. Weekend nights). This popular location tends to get quite busy with wait times becoming excessive. Overall, if you are going to be in this vicinity I highly recommend stopping in and getting a drink and some great food.

“Good eats and cheap food will make the wait worth it....”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Went here for my sister's birthday.... Party of three at 9:30PM on a Saturday night was an hour, which was expected. We waited in car with the buzzer thing... Food is always good here.. Crawfish dinner is our favorite... Place is always hopping ... Go off hours for lunch if you can, to avoid the wait...

“The best never gets old.”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

No matter how many times I have eaten here over the years (25 plus), I never get tired of eating here. The food is fantastic as always, the service is snappy, and the atmosphere is loud, but festive. Avoid on Saturday evenings, as you will be waiting almost 90 minutes.

“Yummy, Inexpensive and Close”
Reviewed October 10, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is a great place. Food is excellent at reasonable prices, unlimited chips and salsa and great great food. Only thing is everyone knows this, so the wait it pretty long. Put your name down and go to the nearby mall, or go during off hours! A must-eat!
