We LOVE this place. Full bar, great people, wonderful food, big servings. We've been going here for years and always take friends when they visit. Great margaritas too!

We were craving guacamole and mole and decided to give this local restaurant a try. The salsa tasted like tomato sauce...nothing fresh about it. The guacamole was terrible. It tasted like mushed avacodo with no flavoring whatsoever. We decided not to order dinner due to the disappointing appetizers. We are not finicky, but expecting authentic food.

As a vegetarian, the menu had a vegetarian section for me, so everyone was happy. I had an issue when the waitress told me the Mexican rice was made with chicken stock. I told her it shouldn't be on the vegetarian menu!!! I asked to have it replaced with something vegetarian, like black beans. She said it was no problem, but our next waiter said he would charge extra to switch the rice with beans. I thought that was ridiculous. The chef came and talked to me and assured me the rice was vegetarian and not made with chicken stock, so what could I say? I accepted the questionable rice and enjoyed the rest of my food. One of the boys was afraid the food would be too spicy, but he was relieved that it wasn't. Another boy wanted really spicy food, and they brought a green sauce that made him happy. They were patient with us. The prices were reasonable and the food was delicious.

Hopefully it was a bad night based on the other reviews. Went there hoping for a similar experience to others.

Suggest skipping this place all together. The food was aweful! Fajitas were obviously reheated- dry meat, limp peppers and onions, and served warm at best. Sent it back, only to be served the same thing, slightly warmer.

The rest of us ate moderately warm food, had to get up to ask waiters to refill drinks, and ask for a check to leave.

When asked upon paying "how was dinner" and telling of our experinece, the lady just shrugged and said "oh, sorry about that".

Hope others have a better experience!

Always eat here when in town and have never been disappointed. Chips and salsa are a great way to start the meal. Food was out quickly and very good. Enchiladas and Chimichangas are tasty. Fried ice cream is a must.
