“Not coming back..”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Not really sure how everyone has rated this place so highly, but this is my experience. We tried the Pork soft tacos. While waiting we had the freshly made chips & salsa--Excellent! Then we received our meal, very nice presentation on our plates. Rice and beans were average. One bite of the pork taco....yuck! The meat was WAY to greasy and had no flavor...other than grease. Maybe our experince was due to what we ordered, but I do expect quality food. For me, I will stick to Salsarita's when I'm wanting fresh Mexican food!

“great way to end the day”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

We ate here after checking into the Comfort Inn up the street that received good ratings on Trip Advisor. The margaritas were very good...not too much ice and the frozen one was just perfect.
Our server was very outgoing and pleasant and all of the food arrived promptly at the table. I had the beef and chicken fajitas that were brought to our table sizzling and hot. My husband ordered a combination and was satisfied with every item. At the end of the meal our server brought over a delicious sopapilla that was sweet and crunchy. The atmosphere of the restaurant was also nice. We sat in a large booth that felt private and cozy. It was a nice surprise at the end of a long day on the road. I reccomend this place to Mexican food junkies.

“Very fun place to eat.”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

This is a great mexican resaurant, Ceaser and Edgardo are great to get to know, they have an extensive menu with a large mix of "Mexamerican" type food and also authentic Mexican food, but watch out for the ghost peppers. "HOT, HOT, HOT"" They have an all you can eat deal for lunch and dinner, and as long as you can eat, they will bring it to you, very good food.. The servers take care of their regulars, and serve the coldest beer you will find anywhere. All the servers have a great attitude and cut up with you at the bar. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!

“A very good Mom-n-Pop Mexican restaurant”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

The quality of the food - be it some "Americanized" dishes or authentic Mexican dishes - is great and always served withna smile. And the price cannot be beat! Don't be afraid to order off the menu - ask for the green salsa to have WI your chips, and they have a habanero salsa that is even hotter. My daughter is a big fan of the whole fried fish, mojarra. And tasty margaritas, too! The style of cooking is more Jalisco style.
