We are dinner here while on vacation. The worst Tex Mex I've ever eaten. The only thing I liked was the tableside guacamole. Would never go back.

The food is great. A lot of herbs in salsa. Great chille relenos, great quesadilla, ok chimichanga. The sopapillas were overcooked.

We were seated immediately, but our service from our waiter was a disappointment.
Hoping when we go back the next time service will improve. It warrants a repeat visit because it is really one of the best mexican food in Charlottsville.

Went here with a group of 21. Wow...they handled it well. They were attentive, efficient, our orders were correct and the even got the individual checks right. The margaritas were very good. They certainly didn't leave you wondering if there was actually alcohol in them. The salsa was excellent. If you want they make fresh guacamole at the table. My meal was perfect. Great seasoning and came out piping hot.

We were staying in the area and looking for something different, ( not the typical chains we have at home). Mexican sounded good, so we stopped in and had a great time. The interior of the restaurant was much nicer than the average Mexican establishment and the menu was more diverse. The servers was very friendly and attentive, the prices were reasonable, good portions and large selection. The margaritas were great, as were the burritos and chips and salsa. Wish it was closer so we could visit again.

Based on the previous reviews, we were not really expecting much from this place. We were soon proved wrong as we sat down to some delicious chips and salsa. We ordered the supreme nachos as an appetizer, though we soon realized that it was big enough and good enough to suffice as a meal for one or two people. As the entrees came out, we found that we were unable to finish our plates despite the great flavor. Everything we ordered: from fried burritos to beef tacos to chicken quesadillas to fish tacos was great. At about $10 a combo, the prices are very good for travellers.
