“Gone downhill”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

I have been going here for years and years, always loved it. It used to be a great little neighborhood restaurant. A few months ago, I revisited and my mother & I noticed there was lots of gristle and fat in the enchilada sauce. Yuck, couldn't even eat my food. Went back recently, thinking they might have been having a bad day on my former visit. Sadly, the prices had gone up, and it was just as bad, cheap runny gristly sauce, "hard" soft corn tortillas, waaay diluted margaritas, ugh! And the prices were ridiculous for such food; it seriously tasted like they just got cans of the worst cheapest meat sauce and threw it on a cheap enchilada. The fajitas tasted like meat from the day before, tough and gristly; and they charged for cheese and meat and sour cream on top of their high price! Seriously? Sooo disappointed; and to have to pay top dollar, no bueno!! You cannot charge the same price as the gourmet mexican restaurants, and then cut corners with the food, and think that people won't notice! It does NOT compare to the nice places at all! Will NEVER return again. I'm still mad at myself for giving it a second chance, wasted all that money...

“Consistent good food and family friendly.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2011

What a good local place. It has been there for over 25 years and has great margaritas. Salsa and guacamole is divine also.
Say hi to Manuel, the owner when there. He usually wears a blazer/ sport coat. Super nice family.

“Ick”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2011

to go cup is a take out container for salsa
waitstaff knows two speeds slow and stop
food was nasty... tortillas hard as table, no presentation, every bite had onions in it massive overkill, no wonder they offer Margarita specials at 11:00 am to numb the buds to stomach the trash from the kitchen on a plate.
non-alcoholic drinks served in glasses same size of sippy cups and they charge a lot for them
Prices so high my nose bled...really 15.00 dollars for nachos.
