“A little disappointing”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

I was really looking forward to this restaurant and was disappointed by it. Service was slow and not very attentive. Burrito bowl was ok - but seriously, what Mexican restaurant puts peas in their rice? I've been to Mexico and they don't even do that there. Soda is expensive and served in bottles, so no refills. Salsa was good - only redeeming quality.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

The place was packed when we went, didn't have to wait too long for a table. Food was very fresh and I loved the choices. The red sangria was awesome, too.

“Do Eat-In, Don't Take-Out”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

Food is Great >>> IF IF IF you eat there. Otherwise, stay away! The girl answering the phone will put you on hold for 15 minutes and take several other's orders. Then don't order drinks > you won't get them! Don't ask for extra sauce. It ain't coming. But yeah, other than that...food is great. Bottom line. If you eat from this place, eat there. And "it'll be about 40 minutes" actually translates into 1 hr and 15 min. Really, the food is great. But don't do takeout. They've outgrown their ability do to their business to manage the restaurant AND handle take out orders.

Everything was great from start to finish - chips and salsa, drinks, main dish (yummy beef enchiladas, chosen based upon a newpaper review), friendly-fun-fast service, beautiful decor

“Awesome food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

I love this place! The food is always fresh and tasty with some fun twists on the normal Mexican food menu and the staff is super friendly and helpful. You must try their chicken wings - they are amazing and not like anything else you've likely had. Their house margaritas are a generous pour for a very fair $6.00 and they have specials most nights of the week like $2 tacos, $10 burrito and beer, and 30 cent wing night making a visit very economical. And their portions are huge - you will likely be taking home half of your food for leftovers (especially if you indulge in some of their awesome wings as an appetizer). The green chile cheese burger is also very good and something a bit different.
