Came spur of the moment early on a Friday evening. Chips and salsa plentiful and tasty. Nice assortment of dishes. Food came out quickly and was tasty. Not the best Mexican I've had but I would return. Good prompt service. Prices were very reasonable.

Probably the best guacamole I have ever had. I have taken customers here for years. Always great service and great food. All the typical Mexican staples and then some.

The food and atmosphere are great, but service could be better (though not bad). Overall, this is the best Mexican restaurant (food wise) I've been to. Margaritas are strong :)

I was met at counter by three greeters that barely acknowledged I was there. After seating, service was good but food was blah. Overall lukewarm visit. How is cactus Jack rated below this spot? Their steak fajitas blow these up instantly.

Not sure, you could probably order around it on the menu. Both my grandkids have gluten allergies and they love the gluten free menus at the 99 and Georgio's in Milford
