Based on tripadvisor reviews and with the wish of wanting to avoid chain restaurants, we stopped in here for dinner. You get the tortilla chips and what they call salsa but it really more like a warm sauce. So different that I asked for regular salsa but the waitress looked at me like I was crazy and said that was... More

Food was just ok. Nothing special. Ok for a quick bite to eat on the run. Service was good tho. Server was very friendly. Salsa was horrible. That's all I can say about this place - sorry

This was next to the hotel, so I thought I would give it a try. Service was great! Their feature meals are sort of a gourmet take on Mexican. I had the Pescado Vallarta. It's fish, (4 fish to choose from), with mushrooms, spinach, and an awesome white wine sauce. I had the salmon, and everything together was about the... More

That's exactly what it is. The cook had probably been out late the night before, too. Just bog standard Tex-mex ..... amateurish delivery. Do better with fast food. An air of informality and breezing hiding the disorganization and mediocrity.

Food was typical Tex Mex, but the shrimp and fish tacos were fabulous! Only complaint was one person at the table got their food way before the others, which was cold when all were served.

I am truly surprised at the great reviews. We have been driving all day and looked up this restaurant. Sitting here now and can't wait to leave. Chips and "hot sauce" and "queso" just left a burned taste in your mouth. Should have left then but boys wanted to try the fajitas.....should have listened to my gut and left. Retried... More

We enjoyed our visit fairly well. They have red and green dip with the chips. The food, price, and staff were all fair to good.
