“Best Salsa”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

Great value. Start with free chips and salsa - ask them for more to take home and they will hook you up. Plenty of menu items to choose from and all very affordable. If you want to splurge... top it off w/ a premium maragarita or Dos Equis Ambar draft.

“Put Some Spice in Your Life”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

Call ahead! You will have to wait a long time if you don't. It is enjoyable. Their salsa is so hot, but it is good. If you are in the mood for a good alcoholic beverage, this is the place. Go, you'll like it.

“Yum Yum!”
Reviewed October 17, 2011

Ordered the guacamole which they make right there at the table - it was very good despite the waiter dropping one of the halves of avocado (of course he got another). We had to ask for silverware and napkins, but the meals were very good - enough for leftovers. I had a margarita and can say it was very good - and a good thing i had a designated driver! The chips and salsa were good, although the salsa was a bit too spicy for my liking. Would go back.
