“It was OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

I ordered the enchilada verde which was pretty good. The tortilla chips seemed a little heavy and the salsa was unfortunately quite mild with no great taste. The fried ice cream was good. The service was prompt and the atmosphere was average for an independent Mexican restaurant. There was nothing bad but there is nothing to bring me back.

“Been to Better, Been to Worse”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2014 via mobile

Ate there yesterday and had a combination. Food was about average for local Mexican restaurants. The menu has typical items. Service was okay. Not to fast. Not to slow. Didn't get a lot of attention at the bar. Price was cheap.

I'd go back.

“Authentic Mexican Flavors!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

This is one of our favorite restaurants in town (we're even going for dinner tonight!). The flavors are bold, the portions are huge, and the prices are reasonable! The margaritas are good, but they are pre-mixed so they are a little syrupy; still, that's never stopped me from ordering one!

“Good food, good service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

My husband & I visited here in a Sunday afternoon. Our server was friendly & attentive. The food was tasty, although not the freshest Mexican cuisine I've ever had. The atmosphere was festive and appeared clean. Prices were a little steep, but not unreasonable.

“Good food just not enough of it for the price.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

The food tastes a bit on the bland side. All it would take is a bit of salt.
Now to the value. My wife and I each ordered a 4 enchilada dinner. They were tasty but as thin as paper. Not much filling at all. And for a 10 dollar price tag per dinner it was so not worth it. We both left hungry and went to a drive through.
