The food was good, but I thought it was a little pricey. The decor could have used a little more ambiance, but the service wasn't bad

Took our girls basketball team for lunch. When we walked in and told the man at the counter how many we had he made it obvious he wasn't pleased. He didn't communicate for the next ten minutes and then showed us to another room. The service of salsa and chips was slow and stale, and drinks took 15 minutes to... More

I don't know a better way to sum up this place other than incredibly average. The chips were stale, the salsa not much flavor, the shrimp special was bland and the Pollo Cancun was good. The margarita was not one of my favorites. I think it was the mix that they use. The highlight was they had Sol bottles for... More

Growing up in San Diego, my view of Mexican food is a little different than the 'norm', but the food they serve is good and the service was very attentive.

This restaurant is forgettable, at best. The interior is all a utilitarian tan and light wood without an ounce of character. The walls need paint, and a person notices that right away because there is almost no decor. The tables and booths, plates and cutlery, and everything else seem like the owner went to a restaurant supply house and bought... More
