“Always fantastic”
Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

We always enjoy eating here. The fajitas are soooooo fantastic. Fresh tortillas are great as well. This restaurant is always busy so expect a wait if dining at lunch or dinner prime times. The soppapias are Devine and you should leave room to enjoy these. Serive has always been very good. We will co time dining with them but only during off peak times.

“Great Brunch!!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

I've always liked coming here, but this was my first brunch and it was excellent!! The Enchilada Norteno was incredible (cheese & onion enchiladas topped with fried eggs) and the variations on the traditional mimosas were a nice and delicious change. Loved it!! Sit in the bar and avoid the children...

“Nothing special and pricey for what it is”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

As one of the top rated Mex places in Fort Worth I was very curious to see what the fuss was about. I haven't eaten much Mexican in the USA yet so this was one of my first experiences.

I ordered mixed fajitas (beef/chicken) which cost almost $20 for a single serve, amounting to 3-4 strips of each meat and a few sides such as rice, cheese, guacamole. The salsa was a watery mess and I found the food very bland. I asked if they had any chilli sauce and was given another 'habanero' salsa, which was also watery and still too bland for my liking.

The lettuce garnishing the sides was withered, the guacamole was plain and undermixed and the cheese was cheap supermarket stuff.

If they actually prepare the salsa onsite then somebody should really teach the cooks how to reduce sauces. Either it wasn't prepared correctly in the first place, or it was refrigerated for far too long causing the moisture to separate. I would have been happier with some Tabasco.

The venue looks like it could be a fun place to hang out with friends, moreso to drink and to enjoy the food second.

“Very good”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We went on Labor Day and had a great experience. Their sour cream chicken enchiladas are excellent. We also had their tortilla soup which was good.
