“Love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

Would definitely go back. Very good food, and great atmosphere. Usually you get one or the other. We had fun, took pictures on the fake donkey in the entrance.

“Good Choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

We were driving by and saw the sign and decided to give it a try. They were a little busy and we waited about 15 minutes, which wasn't bad. The food was good but I was expecting more traditional flavors, the margarita's were great! The prices were very reasonable but our waiter, David, made the experience memorable. Made the night very enjoyable! I'll be back whenever I'm there.

“Wanted mexican food, got tex-mex”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

We were so excited to got and get some good mexican food, however we found some very mediocre attempt at tex-mex, we figure that being so close to the border it would be good :( wrong we have gotten better up north.
We got the kids some fries, but we might as well had order fish sticks, they tasted so much like fish that they could not even eat them.
Our meal only came with 3 tortillas, we had to BUY more, it was a big plate! 3 is not enough, the kids got Juice but it tasted like the gross tap water. (by the way never ask for water if is not in a bottle, we found that out the hard way).
Even after we mentioned to the server about this issues nothing was done about it, and also the kids meals were untouched as well as the drinks and we still got charge for it.
Service was slow and and even when they tried to see friendly it looked like it was a bother for them to have people to serve.
Would not go there again!!!

“Don't waste your money”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

The food was terrible and our waiter had NO clue what he was doing.
This place was way overpriced for the quality off the food.
Do yourself a favor and spent your time and money elsewhere.
