Carne Asada plate was as good as any I have had. Portions were good size and came with enough flour tortillas for the amount of meat. Others had enchiladas and flauntas and everyone was pleased. Order the guacamole prepared at the table. Good size and excellent taste. If I had to complain, the tostada chips need to be thicker because... More

Our group of eight came here for lunch to celebrate a birthday. Very large place. While the food was fine, the service was quite lacking. Several meals weren't properly filled. We stayed for two hours and our server never once returned to refill our drinks. Then two ladies didn't get change when they paid with cash. Unimpressed.

This place gets busy. We went here for a girls night out. Chips are fresh, I tried the Benito plate which included pork tamale, chicken enchilada, chille relleno, rice and beans all for $16.99. It was so tasty. I would come here again. They are known for their chocolate piñata. We didn't try it but one day I will. I... More

The large neon sign stands out from the other stonebridge store fronts. Easy to find due to being at one of the road intersections into the shopping/eating area. The food options were decent for typical Mexican food with some flare. The Tex-Mex section is small but decent. Tried the pork carnitas, pretty good dish, though I've had cheaper hole in... More

I fell in love with this place when it was in RVA --- it closed so 1 would drive to Northern Va once a month to get my salsa fix --- I love the entrees too but that salsa -- I tell you I even have to buy a quart to bring some home

Our family enjoyed a pre-holiday lunch at this location. The menu is extensive and all the food was very good. Salsa and chips while you wait. The entire staff could not have been more friendly. We really felt welcomed and well taken care of. The highlight of the meal was the chocolate pinata...when you crack it open it is filled... More

Best chips and salsa, period. Had beef fajitas and enchilada s. Food wonderful and generous. Service prompt and attentive. Have eaten here many times, actually seems to be at it's best at peak times.

I brought a group of 50 friends here for lunch on Veterans Day 2016 - we even made reservations in advance. They only assigned 2 servers - thus it took forever to just get drinks. And I had to walk to the manager to tell her the chips and salsa were empty, Then the food order came and nearly half... More

Several friends and I met here for our monthly get together. The special happy hour menu was great combined with the Margaritas is even better. Great place for family, friend and the kids because there is a separate area for families with kids.
