Quality Mexican cuisine. It's a chain, but the food is consistently on point. I enjoy the steak and shrimp fajitas.

$37 for 2 sodas, 3 dip appetizer, nachos & a burrito. The burrito came out wrong and had to be taken back to the kitchen. This food is not that good to be so expensive. Not going back.

Good TexMex food, better than your typical Mexican restaurant, a little pricey, serving size is just ok. Chips are good quality not made with corn, salsa is also better than your typical Mexican restaurant.

Outstanding Mexican food, outstanding service, friendly staff. If you enjoy authentic Mexican, or Tex-Mex, this is a great place to go. The portions are generous and the food is awesome.

Very good food and average service. Fajitas come with ample meat, and great sides, but seems like it's a little on the cheap side. Guacamole should be increased, but then again, when has anyone gone to a southwest/Mexican restaurant and received a ton of guac?...More
