This place has great food. We eat here every time we visit the northwoods. Always a fresh delicious meal and free refills on soft drinks is always a plus.

Everything on the menu is great. Mexican food that will please everyone in your group. Great Margaritas. Fast friendly staff. Lunch specials daily and very reasonable pricing. I recommend the fajitas, you will not be disappointed.

This was our third and last try for this place. Each time, the service got worse. Not outwardly rude, it's just that they don't seem to care about you (the customer). You wait for a server, wait to get water or drinks refilled, you have to ask multiple times for simple service needs. The portions are about what you expect at any Mexican rest. and the quality is ok. Lack of good service pulls this place way down...and out of my locations.

The waiter was prompt, kind and courteous. The chips and salsa were a great appetizer. Entrees were normal but you get a lot of food for the price. Recommended to all.

The food was good.The margaritas are great. The service left something to be desired. My husband and I got the fajitas plate for 2. The fajitas were great and there was so much food. We ate 6 fajitas between the 2 of us for dinner and brought the leftovers home. Once home, we made another 8 fajitas with the leftovers. The quantity of food was well worth it and the food tasted great. Our service experience was horrible. We couldn't seem to catch our server to place our food order, to request more sour cream, to get more drinks, and on and on. We finally had to start asking at the hostess stand for our server because we never saw her. I hope our negative experience with the service was an isolated event. So overall, great food, just don't be in a hurry or be starving and want to eat right away.
