Chicken Enchiladas were great. Shrimp and crab enchiladas...not so great. Salsa was very good. Queso was great. Guacamole was ok,
Easy in and out off I-70.

Went here for the first time with friends recently. Reviews from others we know have been 50/50. But, we like to try new places to avoid getting in a rut.
Happy hour was a bit on the high side in comparison to others.
Ordered the Chili con Queso. What came was a small dish of what looked like Velvetta with peppers in it. When I questioned the "Chili" part as I expected meat, I was told this is their rendition.
We also ordered the chicken Flautitas. Emphasis is on the "titi" as they were also very small and tough. We sent them back and ditched the happy hour menu and went with a grilled chicken quesadilla. It was considerably better.
To their credit, the management did the right thing and removed the appetizers from the bill.
However, we won't be hurrying back. Skip this place and go to Fiesta Jalisco in Dillon or Breck or Hacienda Real in Frisco.

Very disappointed. Party of seven. They were not too busy and we were quickly seated. After placing order, we waited and waited for the drinks and dinners. When the entrees arrived, 4 were cold and 3 were over cooked or sat under a warming light until they were dry and lacked favor. Very disappointed tacos lacked content and were not worth the price charged. Hate to say it, but Taco Bell tasted better and actually has more filling. The chicken fajitas and chicken burrito was ok, but lacked flavor including the sides.

We have eaten here in the past and enjoyed our meals and service, however based on our recent visits we would not recommend this location. Don't waste you time and money here for there are too many good restaurants in Frisco. This location does not compare to the Rio in Park Meadows in Denver food.

In the summer I love sitting outside here and the frozen margs are THE BEST!!!. I love that the chips at this location are Non GMO! The servers are all super friendly! This isn't getting 5 stars only because it isn't that type of restaurant, it's casual, fun and the food and drinks are great! It should be on everyone's list who likes frozen margs!
