“Great food and Lube!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Always a pleasant dining experience with good food, drink and atmosphere. Service is quick with no delays in seating. Value a plus which allows multiple visits without breaking a budget.

“Blah - go to Chico's instead”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

This is an ok restaurant, but exactly like every other generic Mexican place in a state not known for its great Mexican food.

Skip it. Instead, get off at the same exit, but go the other side of the main road, head up the hill until you come to a run-down strip mall, make your way all the way to the end, and eat at Chico's instead. The standard Mexican favorites are better cooked here, there are several interesting items on the menu, and service is consistently good. Try the salmon with mango chutney.

“the worst service ever in a restaurant!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2011

Food was ok, not very clean. Small portions. But worst of all was a very rude waitress!! We saw her only twice. The rest of the time was spent in the back of the dining area watching tv.
