Homemade tortilla chips are fresh and crispy! Salsa good and spicy a tad too tomato saucy for us. Chips & salsa are bottomless so be careful not to fill up on them. Mesquite grilled chicken fajitas were very good, refried beans were also tasty with whole beans in it. Combo options are excellent my choice was chicken enchilada beef taco and cheese stuffed chile relano all very good black beans good only 8.99 whole bill was under $26 including tax. Highly Reccomend

Food not authentic. Service is shoddy. Menu does not have variety. Atmosphere claustrophobic.Avoid it except for maybe a few drinks.

This place typifies why I don’t care for chains; salty, high fat food. Other than perhaps atmosphere there isn’t a reason to come here. In this area there are much better Mexican and Tex Mex choices.

Love the Tex-Mex style food. Fun place, bright, lively setting. Not bad at all for a chain restaurant.
