First time visit and pleasantly surprised. They have a lunch menu and was very reasonable. Top items are hard shell beef tacos and a bean and beef burrito. Great flavored salsa. The enchilada sauce was only ok-too sweet for my taste. Overall, a great experience.

I thought it tasted horrible. The chicken was too chunky and dry. The beans and cheese were the worst. The tortillas were weak.

Corn tacos that had dissolved in a layer of grease that covered the bottom of the plate. Retried beans that looked like runny yellow vomit with floating morsels. Tasteless rice. Don’t bother!

After filling up on the great chips and salsa, we ordered the chicken fajita and it was more than enough for 2. The flavor was fantastic! Sent me back in memories to my childhood. Was surprised, pleasantly! Good prices.

Good service, chips and salsa, but that's where it ends. The margarita was green and artificial tasting. The food was TV dinner quality.

We walked in and the first thing I noticed on a Saturday night around 8pm was it was deserted. As we ordered from a massive menu, I jokingly told my husband, I was waiting for Gordon Ramsey with Hells Kitchen to come in. When the...More

Don't get by here often enough but here we are for lunch. Chips on table while we're getting settled in. They must think we have to get back to work. Salsa was average, everything else was excellent. Building, furniture, facilities all nicer than found in...More
