Description: Every day at 8 a.m., we start chopping veggies, soaking beans, and prepping our mesquite-fired grill. Not because we have to, but because we believe in delicious flavors made-to-order, from hand-rolled enchiladas to our sizzling fajitas to guacamole made right at your table. Everything pairs nicely with a grande margarita, and of course, enjoy the always endless chips and salsa.

Yes it is a chain, but stopping here was a good choice on our part. The menu had all the favorites and then some. The service was good and the prices fair. But most of all, the food was just what we were hoping for.

Pros: Food comes fast, wait staff is so nice (yeah you Chelsea and Abel!), lively atmosphere, the fajitas are always sizzlin', the salsa is hot (if you dig that), you can order the chips without salt and the prices haven't gone up in forever.

Cons: They're skimpy with the fajita toppings. If you ask for more they charge you extra.

Been going here for over 15 years and I've never had a bad experience.

We were staying next door at Hampton Inn and just walked over. They sat us quickly, brought salsa and chips right away. We enjoyed our lunch specials, the service, and the ambiance.

The main reason I didn't rate this Very Good was because the top shelf margarita with 3 liquors I ordered was weak and disappointingly small for the $10.49 price, compared to other restaurants. The carne asada was very tender, juicy and flavorful. The side of veggies had a very spicy seasoning on it that made me cough, and I like spicy so it was too much. The service was friendly and efficient.
