Went here because it was highly rated on trip advisor. Won't go back. Food wasn't horrible but there is certainly much much better Mexican food out there. I'm from west Texas so Mexican food is a staple of my diet and this just wasn't memorable.

On our hotels recommendation, my son and I dined here. They had warned that the restaurant is busy any time you go but it is worth a short wait. At 2:30 on a Friday there was barely a space to be had in the parking...More
