Stopped by here the other night. It is somewhat new to the area. We went on a late wednesday night but the place was packed. We had a 15 minute wait. Waited at the Bar area. They had a decent selection of beer. Was a bit upset that out of all the Mexican Beers out there that they did not have SOL, but oh well, I guess that is hard beer to come by. At the Bar, was able to view the menu while we were waiting so when we got to our table, we pretty much ordered right away. At our table, they did give us a bucket of chips and Salsa which was good. We both ordered a salad before the meal. A lot of time went by before we finally got our main entree. A lot of time. And then A lot more time. The food was very good. I got the Carney Asada and it was cooked perfectly.

All in all, the place is a good place for a decent priced meal. The atmosphere is pleasant, and the food is good. What else can you ask from a chain restaurant.

We tried to eat at this new to our area restaurant a couple of times on the weekends, but they are always so crowded and have too long of a wait. They are right next door to Island 16 movie theatre and we usually go there prior to seeing a movie. Well, we finally got to eat there this weekend. We went early about 430pm , cause we didn't have lunch. We got in and were seated very quickly with no wait. I got chicken fajitas and my husband got steak enchiladas. They were both delicious! We will definitely be going there again.

We love our local on the border....one a week visit for dine in or take out. We were on long island (from long island) for the weekend. good mexican is really hard to find, so when we saw on the border was here, its a great addition!! We were staying locally at a marriott. Went over for dinner and at 5pm they said there was a 90 minute wait, 90 minute wait??? Ive never heard of that before. Do they take call ahead or any reservations? The greeter said "NO!" and IM busy...well, of course they are! kids running around the restaurant and total chaos. what is going on here? We wait to the take out area since we decided to just take it back to the hotel. They did say it would take 15 minutes, took 35 minutes. great food as usual so thats a hit but the service and management needs an entire overhaul!! I hope they do since we would love to come back to the LI on the border. total mix...

They have avocado fries, which will make you think you're in heaven. Try, if you don't get anything else.
