I hope this place thrives!! The food is superb and the portions are monster! Table side created guacamole, hot plate fajitas, great salsa etc. just can't say enough about how great the meal was. Our waiter was perfect knowing not to bother too much and had the ESP of a classically trained pro. Dos X on draft. You will love it!!!

We unfortunately went to this restaurant for dinner, and found all of the food sadly lacking. I ordered a cheese enchilada and "hard" taco, thinking it would be a hand bent and fried taco shell. Instead I received ground beef in a store bought factory made hard shell, the kind you buy in a grocery store. The chips served before dinner were from a factory as well, not fried in house home-made. The enchilada was worse, it was seated in straight tomato sauce from the can instead of even canned enchilada sauce. On second thought maybe it was just tomato soup? The enchilada was gummy and there may have been a hint of corn tortilla, but I think the inside cheese was either velveta or cheese whiz. My husband got a Super Burrito made with what seems like a gravy with pieces of green bell pepper rather than poblano, jalapeño or green chilies. It was served with what was described on the menu as "Pico de gallo". There was only lettuce tomato and bits of red onion in it. True Pico de gallo is not supposed to have lettuce, instead it should have cilantro, lime juice and jalapeño and those were totally absent. We did not finish dinner and would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Excellent food and excellent service. The servers will speak to you in Spanish if you are trying to practice it. There are so many options to choose from whether you are a meat-lover or a vegetarian. The food comes out quickly and is cooked to perfection. The staff is very attentive to your needs and very helpful in making selections. The food is simple and delicious and the portions are large. They even have salsa night once a week. This place is amazing!

This is one of the best Mexican food I have had in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area. The food is pretty simple but yet so delicious. Most of the dishes are the same that you get at any Tex-Mex place but for some reason they just make it so delicious. The servers are friendly here and quick as well. It was a good experience eating here. Highly recommend.
