Shrimp tacos are not the way to go. Everything else that was on the table was good. No major complaints but nothing amazing. Would give it another try though.

You can't beat this place in the Wake County area. The food is great the service is better. The restaurant is always clean and everyone greet you with a smile. I could eat here every night. The portions you get a very generous and you will not lay with an empty stomach.

Most ever time me and my wife eat there, it is consistantly good and fresh. All the dishes we have are ones we re-order.

Everything is excellent. Food is served promptly by courteous young men who are happy to be at work today and serving you. Your food will not all run together and be poured on top of each other as in many Mexican Restaurants. Closed on Sunday. Beverage specials every day.

This is our favorite restaurant in Knightdale. The service is excellent, the food is very good and the price is even better. Me and my wife go often and get salsa and chips, an entree with three items and drinks and we normally walk out under $25.00 I highly recommend this place.

About 15 min wait on a Saturday night, staff friendly and are in contact with waiting guests. Free chips and salsa. Chips fresh and hot! Pork and chicken well cooked and served in a timely manner. Glad wait staff are now taking care of checks at table.
