“Very good Mexican food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

Had a family lunch. The food was excellent, especially the tacos. Waiter was very good but the kitchen was a little slow. Forced to have two Dos XXs. Will go back when we are in the area again.

“Been here many time but today was not good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

Been to this place many times and had great Mexican food but not today. Was actually a step below Taco Bell! Food was bland and cold. even though the plate was so hot you could not touch it, the food was cold....go figure.
Usually a wait to get in this place at lunch and today we walked right to a table. This should have been a sign.

“Slow service,”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

We have waited over 1 hour several times. Food is not bad value for money, but you better have alot of time to wait.

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

My mom and I usually go to the location closest to the beach. It has fairly good service during the week, and excellent service on the weekend.
The food is fantastic. I always get the special: one chile relleno (the best part), a taco, a chalupa, a tostada, an enchilada, and rice and beans, all for $12 plus tax. For me all that always make 2 meals and I take the rest home for lunch the next day.
They're always fast on getting the food out to you, especially on the weekends. The only reason I didn't give it 5 points is because the last time we went it took them 15 minutes to get us our drinks. Waiting 15 minutes for a tea and an ice water is kind of a turn off. But it was a week day so I guess they weren't as attentive

“Good food, great value.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

This is typically the type of place that you go when you're taking friends that you're comfortable with and ones that you're not trying to impress as the food is merely good, not great. However, the prices make it hard to resist as the food and service are very reliable and the drinks are great add well. They have a huge selection of food choices, which I personally feel if they lowered the selection and improved the selection they would be better off. That said, this is a place we will continue to go simply because it's so affordable and it's a good family atmosphere as well.
