“Mexican”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

The plates were absolutely huge! The prices were good. Chips and salsa was fresh. Howevere, three of us ordered various dishes and agreed it was fine, yet not outstanding.

“Good food; huge portions!”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

My wife ordered tacos, thinking they would be a modest serving. They were HUGE! So full of chicken meat that the cheese and lettuce were outside the shells. Oh yes, the shells were enormous, too. I had chile verde that was very tasty, along with great refried beans, a salad and rice, covering a 12- or 13-inch plate clear to the rim. You get two meals at least for the price of one when you consider the take-out left-overs. The low-fat pintos may be good for your waistline, but they don't have the flavor of the refried beans.

“Come here for gigantic I'm-only-eating-once-today portions”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

Come here for gigantic I'm-only-eating-once-today portions.

Otherwise, standard Mexican fare - the rice and beans are both completely average, nothing exciting.

The Pollo Chipotle arrived in a creamy, smoky sauce and was quite good with just the right amount of heat at the end. The downside was that some of the chicken had gristle/ligaments still attached so I ended up hunting for the chicken meat and getting grossed out by the gristle to the point that eventually I just pushed my rice into the sauce and ate that instead.

The upside was that the salsa had a great flavor and was spicy but not too much - they found a great balance of flavor and heat.
