We love this place. We also visit the location in New Castle from time to time. We keep asking them to open a location near the Pittsburgh airport. The food is great...you will have leftovers...are very reasonably priced. I love the beans and rice. My husband goes with fajitas...and they make them very spicy per his request. We recommended this place to someone staying at the same hotel and she thought it was great too.

Good hot food, quick service, and awesome Mango Margaritas! So much better than the chain Mexican restaurants.

Im not quite sure what people from Erie think is Mexican but this is not it. Im from So. California so I know authentic mexican food. I had nachos and a maggie, my husband had a burrito. Watered down, unseasoned, bland..... I could go on. We both got sick. The only decent thing was the tortilla chips if you added tons of salt! Take my advice & go to taco bell!!!!

Great Mexican places are hard to find, especially when you are about as far from Mexico as you can be in the U.S. I was very surprised that a restaurant chain could provide such great food without losing something in the translation. If the pitcher of margaritas wasn't on the weak side, I'd have given an excellent.
