“Really good Mexican Food with Free Margaritas”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We eat here at least once a month. We love the free margaritas and the food is always consistently good. They even serve their salsa warm. It's more of a Mom and Pop place than a chain - and yes it's festively decorated as are many Mexican restaurants.

“Free Margaritas!”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

We came inside and got two free margaritas just for ordering food. We showed the waitress our id's and ordered some queso, enchiladas and fish tacos. Our food was pretty good and our margaritas were average.

“okay but nothing great”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

It's all a bit too messy and casual. The plus here are the free drinks since they don't have a liquor license. The food was ordinary but okay. There wasn't much flavor to the food and it was all a mess. The decor is horrible and the service was pretty bad. Overall, why would I go again? I wouldn't. The prices and the free drinks keep it popular in this college town.
