“Tasty tex mex”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

This restaurant has a large menu that has a little something for everyone, especially those who aren't devoted Mexican food fans. The menu is large. It arranged so that you're not overwhelmed by the choices. Complimentary chips and several salads start the meal off nicely. Many of the entrees come in both a regular sized portion and a smaller, smaller priced version. I had a tilapia filet with a spicy sauce that contained shrimp. Service was friendly and efficient.

“Excellent Mexican Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

My husband and I stopped in for lunch one Sunday and were pleasantly surprised. We were seated right away and the food was better than any Mexican food I've tasted in this area. Our waitress, Marcea, was superb--very attentive. Great dining experience!

“big on atmosphere and price...small portions”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

My shop had a luncheon for a departing coworker today. This is the 2nd time I've been here in about 2 years. The first time was just like today. The portions on their chicken fajitas are very small, two miniature tortillas a smattering of cheese and toppings just does not meet the 13$ lunch price. Save your money if you can...Go elsewhere! This restaurant is pushing their rent bills on their customers without decent portions.
