Quick friendly service. Not the best Mexican food ever but still delicious. Drinks were of good size, moderately priced and tasted good. Nice atmosphere.

Walked in and ordered for carry out in February 2017. The wait for the food was only 10 minutes! Very nice hostesses and at least the lobby of the restaurant was very clean. Very cool décor. Took the food over to the Drury Inn to eat and it was delicious. Definitely try the supreme nachos (chicken/steak with all the veggies!)... More

PB is blessed with Tex Mex places, but this is usually our goto. Happy hour from 4 to 7 Monday thru Thursday for 2 for 1 Margaritas is my favorite part, and my wife thinks their salsa is the best in town. Good food, friendly staff, good service.

The waiter argued with me about something I used to get on a regular basis. They would no longer let me get a half order of beans and a half order of rice for $1 extra instead of a whole order of one. The waiter was just rude. they used to have the best salsa but then they changed the... More
