Nothing special here – not bad, standard fare, but not outstanding. Small chain in Lancaster with 5 establishments, good for family eating, same as 90% of the Mexican restaurants out there so no need to dial this one in. Portions were ample, food was hot,...More

Palmdale is all strip malls and chains so my expectations were a bit low. This place worked well for a business dinner. The veggie fajitas were surprisingly filling, with a big variety of veggies and potatoes plus a cheese-stuffed chili relleno; huge portion. The salsa...More
