“Good food, but not great”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

This is located conveniently next to the Riverwalk and has a nice view. The food is good, but there are many other Mexican Restaurants in the area that are more authentic and cheaper. The service was good. We seldom order dessert, but decided this once we would, it was overpriced and small.

“Great Mexican food”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Nice location on the Riverwalk but as tempting as it is to sit outside be aware of very agressive pigeons/birds. Better to sit inside with a window view of the RW.

“Great location, but average food”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Had lunch here one afternoon and sat outside in front of the river walk. Enjoyed. Great margarita and a beef burrito with rice nd guacamole. The service was prompt and food was fine. Not memorable but okay. Would I go back...probably but only after trying the many other Mexican restaurants along the river walk and there are many.

“Good experience”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Convenient location on the river. Reasonably priced and decent food. Waitstaff was attentive. It is located just off of the Rivercenter Mall which is a plus.

“Avoid this place”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Bad food- ordered a grilled chicken salad and it was very poor quality - close to hotel but not worth it
