I had heard this place was very good before I went, but I was disappointed. I got a taco salad, and all it had was lettuce, tomato and sour cream in a taco shell. And the chips and queso was just melted cheese in a bowl.
Go to Moe's instead :)

We've been here more than once and I see no reason to stop going. Food is always, hot and delicious. Servers are friendly and honest with their opinions. And the Grande Margarita will help make your evening even better.

They have 2 locations in rochester. When the first one opened on east ridge rd, a friend and I practically lived there. The manager was friendly and personable, the food was always amazing, and prices very reasonable.
They have done very well since then, and now have another location in webster. The webster location is a much nicer environment, but sometimes i think the food is slightly better on ridge rd, even though it is all the same stuff.
I do think that the quality of food has dipped slightly since they opened, but thats not to say that it isnt good food. It is all very tasty, i recommend the pollo fundito, the burrito monta alban, the cheese steak taco and the shrimp quasadillas.
There is a lack of options for mexican dining in the rochester area and with the options available, this is one of the best. Prices are desent too.

Awesome food and drinks. The chips and salsa that are served when you are seated are awesome! We used to go every week now they are very busy so go early if you don't want to wait. Staff is very friendly.
