Met a friend that I have not seen for a while here for dinner. The place is absolutely huge and gobbles up people. Don't let a the full parking lot scare you away, as it nearly did us. When we got inside, it was only...More

Two large groups planned their post-grad celebrating at Highland House. They couldn't accommodate the two groups, other than placing two large tables next to each other. It was stifling hot inside, so our group opted for a large round table on the patio. We asked,...More

The food is "typical Mexican", nothing special...just a lot of it. I would rather have smaller portions and lower prices than take things home. Many people come for the Margaritas (lots of flavors) but we're not margarita drinkers. The atmosphere is fun and cheery; and...More

We were in the area and stopped by on a very nice night. While the patio was pleasant the chips come with very bland salsa and watered-down ranch dressing. Ranch?! Unfortunately things did not improve. Tacos and rice were completely unmemorable. Nachos were burnt. Everything...More

The food is good - mexican themed. Good beer selection. Ok wine selection. Very good margaritas. The place seems to draw from the local college so typically busy at dinner time.

The decor on the building is deceiving. Swordfish!!! If you don't do your research, you'd think it was a seafood restaurant. It's primarily Mexican but I didn't see one Mexican worker in the place. Food was average. Service at lunch was good. Won't go back...More
