I would put this restaurant among the top 2-3 Mexican restaurants in Huntington area. They have recently remodeled and it makes for a better atmosphere. I've been going here for years and never disappointed.

Unless you're going for 99 cent shots go somewhere else. I have been several times and have almost always wished I'd gone somewhere else. The wait staff is not good, the men are creepy and though the bartender makes good drinks she is very unprofessional and rude. The food is no better than the 20 other Mexican restaurants in town,...

This is a nice place with really good food. It is very reasonably priced also. They have specials throughout the week......For example, Saturday's special is ANY combination dinner is only $3.99. This is a good restaurant for a family on a budget.

Nothing special here but it is one of the longer-lasting Mexican franchises in the city. Very inexpensive to eat (without alcohol a family of 4 can get out the door for $25 or less after tip). Good service and decent Mexican food.

This is by far the worst Mexican restaurant in Huntington. The food is not well seasoned and doesn't even have cilantro in the Pico. I have tried it a couple of times using coupons. Wasn't worth the savings.

Food was cooked in old oil. They used a cheap kind of rice. The portion of vegetables they gave was very small. The broccoli had discoloration. They gave 2 laughably small pieces of tilapia. They gave one small bowl of salsa for the chips. We had to ask for another one for three people. They never even offered to refill... More

DISGUSTING! This place is gross. The 4th Avenue location was in trouble a few years ago after making a bunch of people sick. They also got in trouble when inspectors came in and found they were stirring food with a stick found in the alley behind the restaurant. My personal experiences: Once eating with my girlfriend we got the fajitas.... More

The food was very good although they need to be careful to not cross contaminate when preparing vegetarian dishes. Also the refried beans were a little too mushy and there is too little lighting in all of the booths excepting the middle. However, for the price the rest of the food was fairly good.

There are a number of locations in the area, and they are all good. Nice, friendly folks, quick service, great coupons, and low prices anyway. It's almost embarrassing, they are so reasonably priced, and for such well-prepared food. Very dependable, Mexican grub, nothing fancy.
