Description: Every day at 8 a.m., we start chopping veggies, soaking beans, and prepping our mesquite-fired grill. Not because we have to, but because we believe in delicious flavors made-to-order, from hand-rolled enchiladas to our sizzling fajitas to guacamole made right at your table. Everything pairs nicely with a grande margarita, and of course, enjoy the always endless chips and salsa.

My wife and I work about 5 minutes from this place and I have been here like 10 times and it's not bad for a quick lunch but the service is almost always painstakingly slow and I usually leave disappointed. Not necessarily in the food which is nothing special but chain restaurant Mexican, but with the slow service.

The place is very crowded starting at happy hour. Interesting drinks, well priced, friendly bar staff. The food is traditional mexican, tacos, tamales, enchiladas, fajitas, etc. All well prepared ,served hot and in a timely, non-rushed, pace.

Visiting the area and we were in the mood for good Mexican food. We weren’t disappointed, not bad at all. Good service, good food, great portions for the price. We look forward to returning.

Stopped in after arriving at hotel for a quick bite. Food was ok but chips were very salty and salsa not that flavorful. The chicken tacos were good. The issue was service was very slow. We ordered a beer and tried to cancel shortly after and got an excuse that the order was already placed and yet it took another 10 min to get a drink. Overall the food was fine for a quick bite but with slow service you'll need to plan for a long nite.

Right on route 1 in front of Hyatt Place Hotel. Good, large margheritas and I loved the grilled chicken/shrimp combo. The price was also very reasonable
