The service was not as good as during past visits. One person of our party of six got his meal 20 minutes after everyone else...in addition it included the condiments that he requested be left off. On the bright side, the food was tasty.

I stopped here for lunch and had a tostada and taco. maybe I have been spoiled by my hometown restaurant, but I was surprised that the taco came hard shell, with cheese and lettuce (no tomato), as opposed to soft shell with onion and cilantro....More

Visited on a referral and food was good and service good. Maybe not true authentic Mexican food. I had taco salad and it was served in a cripsy taco rather than a taco bowl

This restaurant is in a great location and the only Mexican restaurant I know of in the area. Do not eat here. The food has no flavor. We had to over salt every thing just to bring some sort of flavor out. Service is lacking...More

I've gone here twice with a girlfriend. We love it! The atmosphere is fun and cheerful; the waiters are friendly and helpful; and the food is phenomenal. Don't forget to tell them when it's your birthday for free, delicious fried ice cream ;)

Loved everything about this place. A special shout out to our server, Tiffany. She did a perfect job! On a different note, the women's bathroom was very nice and clean. We had a great experience!

Very colorful and clean interior and fast friendly service. Good value for the money. Nice place to take a relaxing lunch break and a far cry better than chain fast food.

The inside is very colorful and has nice Mexican decor. We didn't wait long to be seated but when our waitress came to the table, she seemed very rushed. The restaurant at the moment wasn't busy at all. They serve you chips and salsa, but...More
