This place serves frozen, nuked crappy versions of Mexican food. It was GROSS! Do not Eat there! There are many other places to eat.

“Food was ok”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

Our waiter was probably the best part about our visit here. He was very attentive and came around often to make sure our drinks were refilled.
We ordered the white queso with green chiles and it was phenomenal! Other than that, the rest of the food was just so so. The hot sauce tasted like they just opened a jar of picante sauce rather than being home made. The ground beef was bland with very little flavor. The enchiladas were ok - red sauce was extremely spicy and the mild were just right on the spice factor.
Pulled pork was good.
All in all, just mediocre food and I probably wouldn't go back except for the cheese!

We decided to try this restaurant out due to a friends suggestion. Unfortunately I did not have the same experience as they did. When we sat at our table it was still dirty and needed to be wiped down. Overall cleanliness was a little lacking. The waiter took awhile to come over and finally take our drink order. We decided to get fajitas for the meal. I never have had fajitas take as long as it did to prepare. We finally received our food and it was decent but nothing to write home about. Tortillas seemed store bought. The service was slow and somewhat disturbing due to the waiter constantly coughing, sneezing and wiping his nose with his bare hand then immediately preparing peoples drinks etc. Most likely will not return.
