“Average”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Food choices are nice, service lacking, the wait staff seemed uninspired and did not apologize for inattention.

“A Really Nice Place to Eat”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

This restaurant is very large, but it has a friendly atmosphere. The servers are eager to please--allowing substitutions of sides or putting the salad dressing on the side upon request--and that makes the meal a very pleasant experience. My favorite is the chicken fajita--served with rice, tortillas, cheese and beans; it's really good. My companion ate the fish tacos and said that they were also really tasty. It has a large outside sitting area, which is great when the weather cooperates. The prices are moderate and the value is terrific.

“Carne Asada/10”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

Serious the best place in the area to get a flank steak. Their carne asada is to die for as well as their tortillas and tortilla chips. Their salsa is very good although it can be hit or miss depending on how much jalapenos and cilantro they have in it (the more the better)!

“Best chips and salsa in town”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

They bake their own chips and their salsa is next to none in good, smoky fresh flavor. The selections are vast and the service is friendly. Need extra dressing? No problem. Need to "hold" the dressing? No problem. Need to substitute black beans for refrieds? Happy to help.
Gets crowded at lunchtime so recommend reservations for those with no time to spare.
