This is the worst Mexican food I've ever had at a restaurant. My cheese enchiladas tasted like a block of Velveeta, the beans had NO flavor and the "Mexican rice" wasn't fully cooked. Ps. Mexican rice isn't red. My margarita (although tiny) was the highlight...More

We had a very nice waiter. The food was delicious. My nachos and the bean dip were excellent! 🌮 Nice atmosphere and busy on a Wednesday evening.

This has to be one of the worst restaurants for service - ever. 1-1/2 hour wait for dinner, and it was entirely wrong. Had to be sent back. The incompetent waitress got the order wrong ---- or lost. We're not sure. Absolutely deplorable service. Not...More

We're very sorry William you had such a long wait time and your order was incorrect. We do apologize. We do get very busy, which attests to the fact that we offer great food and good service. We wish you the best.

There is no better margarita in Toledo !! The Mexican food prepared their is as good as it gets. The chicken wings appetizers are excellent and numerous. Wait time on weekend can be 30 minutes.

The chips and salsa at the start of the meal were fantastic. There were large groups that came in so it made the service kind of slow. The food came and it was okay at best. Nothing special, but nothing terrible. The drinks were good...More
