We were invited here by friends. Busy place! Normal Mexican ambiance. I was impressed by the very reasonable lunch prices. I ordered a chimichanga with ground beef. The others varied items. My chimichanga was very average. Did not have any special flair.

I've tried this restaurant on several occasions and it's "just okay" to me. Nothing jumps out. The food is average, the drinks use to be very good, but now, just okay. Service is good, prices are okay.

We were just driving through Tallahassee on a Sunday and happened to see how many cars there were in the parking lot. We had the fish tacos which were delicious, and Margaritas, which were wonderful. Very nice staff.

Why eat at a fast food place when you can get better food at just about the same price for lunch? They have decent service, atmosphere and food for the price.

Overall a great resturant for a Sunday dinner. Went around 4pm before the crowd came in. Food, Service, and staff were great. They were friendly and very attentive.

Great food, fresh and very tasty. Busy night, but service could have been a little faster. Very loud for a non bar environment. Will go again though.

Not sure Kayla. I've only been there for food. Didn't pay attention to Happy Hour. Have to give them a call.
