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.

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.
