My wife and I came for dinner. It was busy but we got seated pretty fast. The waiter was not fast by any means. We finally got our margaritas and they were all right. My wife had soup and salad which she enjoyed. My tacos were ok. The rice and beans were ice cold. We will give this place another... More

What can I say, I love this place!! If it fit in my suitcase, I would take it home. The only thing wrong, is it is too far from where I live. LOL. We visited there twice while in Mesa, the chips and salsa are always great, the food was good as usual. The great thing on the 22nd (International... More

We went for dinner here with a family group of 7 people, all adults. We were seated near the service station where there was a lot of noise and two of our party were elderly with hearing aids so this was not great. Our waiter was very friendly but when our dinners came he had forgotten to place one of... More

Quite the Mexican restaurant, extremely colorful! Starting w the delicious chips and salsa which were sooooo fresh (made on site). I had the tres enchiladas, three picks from a list of 5. Yummy! The healthy version was good as well. There is a lounge area which appeared to be rocking. :) Tv's were strategically placed throughout. Quite a large restaurant... More

Liked their queso. The hard shell tacos were huge. Didn't really care for the red sauce on the enchilada. Refried beans and rice were good. The chips and salsa were wonderful. Our waitress didn't check back often until she brought the check. Had to wait until then to get water refills.

The service was excellent! The fish tacos were a little disappointing; deep fried a little too long. I took off the batter & ate the fish. Perhaps there could be a grilled fish taco option?? Other than that, it's great food and service!
