Had a group of 8, service was quick and very attentive. Food was good, the fajitas were enough to want to take some home if you hadn't eaten all of it in the first place.

We have eaten here a couple of times. The food is standard Mexican fare. The service is friendly and quick. The food is hot. The margaritas are good. Nothing special, but consistently good food and service.

Excellent authentic Mexican food. Friendly service and staff. Portions are great for sharing! I had the chicken, steak and shrimp combination. Another plate we had was the shrimp and vegetable stir fry. There was a generous amount of shrimp were included. Everything was very good.

We are accustomed to The Azteca in the Charlotte area. It is very hard not to compare because of how good it is. We had the Carne Asada. It was seasoned well enough and was very tasty. The service was good and timely. The tourism hasn't really cranked up in April so there were few people. We would definitely eat there again if we go back to the area.

I've had much better Mexican food. When we walked in it felt dirty so we asked to eat outside. Service was fair and their business was slow. I don't think I'll go back.
