Good food at a great price. I love their salsa bar. The salsa is fresh and the seasoned chips are yummy! This place has stood the test of time and has been there for over 20 years.

Went with a friend. I am on a low fat diet and ordered the fayita saladThe lettuce was inedible. I took the salad back to the counter and they did offer to make me something else to eat. They have no low fat/healthy options.

This is an unbelievably bad Mexican Food restaurant. The candy flavored Margaritas have no alchohol, the chips are sprinkled with a weird powder, the salsa is flavorless, the food bland and the service bad. I cannot even imagine how this place is still in business...More

We use to eat here often. Tonight our order was lost as guests who arrived after us were served while we waited 25+ minutes. When I told the staff at the counter we still had not received our order, they went into the kitchen and...More

We came in just before the kitchen closed but they acted happy to see us. Unfortunately they were out of brisket tacos, but the fajitas were very good.
