“Great Mexican food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Great food served fast. Prices can't be beat. The new chairs are very heavy but they are beautiful. Very good margaritas.

“Good food and good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012 via mobile

Salsa was fresh. Order the mexican guacamole rather than the reg guac; mex guac was fresh with chunks of avocado and freshened by lime. We ordered a variety of dishes; no one was displeased. Our waiter was prompt and there when we needed him without interfering with our conversation. Not five stars but better than a lot of the bland texmex versions out there.

Stopped at this place while on a cross country trip, spent the night in town. Food was decent with large portions. The service was efficient.

“Mexican Fare/No Surprises”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

These restaurants started out as a few in our area and have spread out quite a bit....their food is just OK, and many younger customers like it for the prices.
