Let me start by saying we eat here 2-3 times a month, usually with a group of 6-10 people. We have those who love hot and those who don't, but there is something for everyone, even the kids. Service is good, attentive by not intrusive. Although they have a line on Sunday, there is no feeling of rushing you out.

My family reserved space for 50 people, yes I said 50 in short notice. They jokingly laughed thinking it was a joke, but we let them know we were serious. We were all in town for a funeral. Anyway, we took up the outdoor section, they pushed and pulled tables together for us and they just about got everyone's food... More

We ordered shrimp chipotle $$$, kids meals and cheese enchiladas and cheese dip. The cheese dip was the best thing it was white cheese dip. The enchiladas had a very tart red sauce on it. My daughter didn't like it. I thought it was ok. Probley won't go back.

Most Mexican restaurants have the same menu same specials same selections. This one has a great variety (three different tamales in one entrée)! The presentation of the food was appealing. The portions were good sized and there was plenty of seating and very little wait to get in or get seated get our order placed and receive it at the... More

A group of 6 recently went on Friday night. We were seated promptly and chips and salsa were served. Salsa is okay but would like it to be freshly made. Food was good and I will return, but lacks some polish of some other places.

It was just an "ok" meal. We were seated super fast and waited on fast. The chips & salsa were very good! The meal was were something was lacking. My hubby ordered fajitas and when the waiter brought them out they were not sizzling. I had ordered Enchiladas and they were warm but, not warm enough to melt the cheese... More

I have never had anything that wasn't good. If it's not on the menu just ask they can make it. Best margaritas around.

We have enjoyed eating here in the past but our recent visit was BAD. The chips tasted old and the salsa was equally not very good. I had fish tacos which were described as grilled tilapia with shredded cabbage and a "special" cream sauce. I got a bunch of shredded fish and the only flavor was SALT. The cabbage and... More

service was awful, server was RUDE. Management didn't care....food wasn't very good. Last time I'll be there for sure - too many GOOD Mexican food restaurants around here to ever bother with this one again.
