I am a regular at a few of the locations. I enjoy the atmosphere. I always get quick and friendly service. Food is great too. I have been during lunch to work on my homework, and I have been for date night with my boyfriend.

Six of us stopped for lunch here with a time constraint schedule. Our waitress was friendly, helpful, and on top of things. Most of us had the lunch special which was lunch fajitas. The portion size was generous and they were very good. Chips and salsa are kept filled throughout the meal.

My husband had been to this restaurant several years ago and thought it was pretty good, so we decided to pay a return visit. It wasn't as good as he remembered it. My husband had a tostada and taco, both with ground beef. He said his food was bland. I had the Speedy Gonzalez #1 lunch special (enchilada & taco... More

This place has been remodeled in the last few months with new furniture, flooring, and menus. It's a great place to find a "value" dinner and always has a special. Very rarely do you wait more than 10 to be sat or get your food once ordered. Always happy to accommodate large groups and they have a coupon in the... More

Upon walking through this unsuspecting doorway your eyes will meet a sea of florescent colors and smiling faces. The hot salsa will have you sweating and asking for more if your anything like me. The white queso dip is rich and smooth with just a slight spiciness that agrees with even your youngest of fans. Fajitas are brought out sizzling... More

The food here is very good, but the service we had was very slow. It took a long time for our food to be delivered, to get refills and even to get the check.

I have heard a lot of really good things about this place so maybe I just caught them on an off night & it was VERY crowded. I got the Enchiladas Aculpulco & found it to be somewhat bland. No complaints, but nothing to really rave about either.

For a Tuesday night they weren't prepared to serve us. Waited 20 mins for drinks. The espinaca dip was watery and not good. The salsa was perfect. Rice very dry. The fajitas were okay. Onions and peppers were burned but the steak was perfect. Most likely won't be back
