Waited way to long to place order. Ordered steak fajitas with no guacamole, sour cream, or beans, just rice. Received guacamole, sour cream, with extra beans and no rice. It was taken care of and it was correct the second time. Food was just above average. Never was able to get a waitress for a drink refill. Took 15 minutes... More

I have eaten here many times. Food is always good and plenty of it. However, service is somewhat lacking. Always run empty on drinks without fail. I can hear employees in back laughing and have a good time but Always at customers expense. Good food, bad Service. It is what it is

Traveling through and stayed at a motel nearby. The food here was very good and very well priced. The waiter was very personable. Enjoyed our dinner very much and would return if in the area again.

The prices are great. The food is pretty good and portions are large. It seems to be typical Mexican food for this area. Of course, there are better places but that usually comes at a cost. The service is usually lacking a bit; however, if you are a regular they tend to take better care of you. Nothing fancy here... More

Ordered seafood quesadilla with no onions or bell peppers. Got quesadilla, cut it open and it was loaded with onions and peppers and TWO PIECES of shrimp. Left food, walked out.

Love this place resonable yet food is good and they are not stingey with the servings. Have eaten here several times one of my faves. My family loves it. The best salsa and chips oh cheese dip is a must.
