A generous serving of free chips and salsa began the meal. I was seated promptly (it appears that most staff are empowered to seat arrivals, as I was not seated by the hostess, who was busy, but by someone else - whether a food runner or bus person I couldn't say). There are daily specials, but I opted for beef empanadas, instead of the tacos special ( which was chosen and quickly devoured by a father with two middle-school aged sons at a nearby table). Margaritas, beer and wine are available - I opted for wine - a respectable glass (well, two) of cabernet for 7$ a glass, which I found preferable to a 5$ Mexican beer, and a decent accompaniment to the food. While the food was nothing special it arrived quickly, and was decent. The empanadas were just a tick overdone, but still tasty and flaky - not bad for a chain restaurant. Seeing how quickly the nearby table ate their tacos, I probably should have gone for that special. I arrived shortly after opening time, and by the time I left, the place was nearly half full, which I take as a sign of popularity for a mid-week lunch. The service was excellent. Just as I was ready for the second glass of wine my server was there to ask if I'd like another, and was right there also when I was ready for the check. A world above Taco Bell, but a notch below a good family-owned Mexican place. Pretty standard for a Mexican chain, but decent food with great service.
