Had a client I needed to win over and with the help of my server Jon and his witty Conversation, it set the tone for me to close the deal for my company. Food was great too.

We really enjoyed the food and the portions were very large. The waiters and waitresses very friendly and fixed the food to our likings. I definitely will return with my family.

best choice in the area for real mexian food. The margaritas are great and I cant get enough of their chips and salsa. The pricing is very reasonable as well.

Have to go right down the middle on this one. Service was good, food was decent and the Margaritas were ok. If I was in the area and wanted Mexican - I'd go back but not driving out of my way to go.

Enjoy eating here! Food is very good! Average price! The salsa is inconsistent! Sometime so hot other times mild!

Good for a lunch break. We sat in the booths by the bar. No weekend happy hour, but not a big deal. The chips are endless, but the homemade salsa is spicy (but good)...a margarita helps :) Love the beef empanadas and the Queso was pretty darn good (first time trying Queso). Kenny was our server and he rocked. He... More

Visited after a funeral, small group and didn't feel it was the visit to call the Manager to address the issues, but it is the worst Mexican Restaurant ever. The basket of chips,, all chips were broken were you couldn't dip them in the salsa, the guacamole done with a not-yet-ready avocado so it had hard full of hard lumps,... More

I can't make any positive or negative recommendations about the food, since it's pretty neutral. The drinks however are above average and the service is superior. The complimentary nachos and salsa are wonderful. I'd definitely recommend this place.

Thank Joe M
