“A Great Find”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

My husband and I randomly passed this little gem and decided to give it a try on a whim. Though there are a number of Mexican restaurants in the area, this is absolutely the best! Great, fresh food and quick service. Loved it!

“Average service, but excellent food”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

This place has had better staff in the past, lately they seem slow and just average, but the food is always awesome. I think it's the best Mexican food around!

“An okay Mexican restaurant”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

The portions are large and the guacamole is good, as is the service, but nothing special for food. The parking lot is odd and you can't walk there because there is no sidewalk.

“Best mexican in the area”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

We go here often when in the mood for Mexican. We love that we can bring out own tequila and make margaritas. We always get the Cactus Blue Trio and the Shrimp fajitas. Both are delicious! Also get the gauc to go with your complimentary chips and salsa. We recommend making reservations and ask for a table away from the door if it is cold outside (there is a draft).
