We were in Tallahassee as part of a tour group staying at a nearby Hotel. As we both like Mexican food this was an ok option for us as there seemed to be nothing else close by. Staff seemed a bit shocked to have "tourists"...More

Great place! Always fun! 2 for 1 margaritas and they don't go cheap on the tequila. Fajitas are fantastic. College crowd so people are their enjoying themselves. Prices are good!!

Stopped in for dinner and drinks. The margaritas were average but good. The food was nothing spectacular. Basic and good tasting. The service left a lot to be desired. It's okay...but not my first choice for the future.

We got to the restaurant about 8. It was 9:45 before we got our food (except chips) and when we got it, it was luke warm which it should have been hot. We had two rounds of chips befoe they even took our drink order.

Out of town visitors who picked this place at random. Good prices, 2 for 1 drink specials all day, good food, too. The place was noisy from one group that was celebrating but our oversized margaritas helped to blunt that.
