We there for the first time even though we live close by. They grill the meat fish right there. I ordered the mahi mahi taco platter and my husband ordered shrimp taco platter. It is $9 but the portions are too small. On mine very small 3 pieces of mahi mahi. 3 shrimp per taco. I ordered a side salad... More

We were really looking forward to going here after purchasing a Groupon for two toco platters and two drinks. We ordered a mahi mahi taco and a chicken taco plate using whole wheat tortillas. They had a very nice little bar for extra sauce, jalapenos, cilantro, onions etc. They also had flavored ice tea as well a regular tea plus... More

The menu looked spectacular but the food tasted awful. Nothing was seasoned at all. The salad consisted of lettuce only. The rice had no seasoning or salt or pepper. Very bland. The fish had no taste. This might be ok for some people but not for me.

I've eaten here a few times in the past (several years ago) , loved it, then moved out of town. Here I am like 4 years later, visiting family in Round Rock, and drove all the way down just to grab some food from here! Still as good as I remember...ordered chicken nachos, and dressed it up with all their... More

Went for the roasted chicken and it was dry. Looked like average local Mex restaurant. Might try something else another time

I eat here frequently, so I must like it because I am careful about what I put in my body. Grilled chicken salad is my regular go to dish, but even when I stray I always get the salad as one of my sides. Charro beans are always the other side. Peach mango tea is the best. Quick tasty and... More
