Perhaps one of the best Mexican restaurants we have ever eaten at. Food was fantastic, the portions were big, and the service was great. A bit of a drive for us but definitely worth the trip. Can't wait to go again next week!

Stopped tonight on my way to Taco Bell because I thought local food must be better. Taco Bell would have been 1O times better! My Fajita Quesadilla Camaran was horrible. It was bland for the most part. The sour cream was gritty and weird. Some of the shrimp inside the quesadilla still had the shell on them! Needless to say I ate 3 bites and could no longer go further. I set the plate aside. The waiter walked up and took the plate that was still full of food. Didn't ask if anything was wrong or how the food was. Needless to say I spent 30 dollars for crappy food and 2 margaritas served in a Mason Jar Why?

First attempt we showed up on a Sunday evening at 9:00pm because the local dining guide website showed they were open until 10:30 pm and we were informed that they closed at 9:00. We came back the next night and they were pretty busy at 7:30 pm. We were first in line and Didn't get seated for 7-8 minutes. Had others seated after us and get served first. Waited 20 minutes for a drink order that never showed up. They were extremely short on help to serve a full restaurant. We left and went to Chuy's and had a very good meal

We stopped here for a late supper, near their closing at 10 PM on this day. We were greeted with salsa and a bowl of slightly stale chip and ordered a pitcher of Dos Equis Amber for $10.99. We selected the Fajitas Caribe for $15.99 and a Burrito Loco for $10.99. The Fajitas Caribe included chicken, scallops and shrimp. Unfortunately all were over cooked and the peppers and onions overpowered the seafood. My burrito, beans and rice weres just lukewarm and the some of the chicken was still in chunks, not shredded. The staff was pleasant and the decor was colorful. We'll try it again closer to normal dinner time but skip the Fajitas Caribe for sure.

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in the northeastern suburbs of Cincinnati. The food is always great, especially our #1 choice, Tilapia La Paz -- outstanding. Pre-meal chips and salsa are excellent. Portions are large, and the servers are very friendly and accommodating. Usually there are many families with kids as well as groups with more than four people, which makes for a lively atmosphere, so be aware that it tends to get pretty noisy. Not a bad thing, but definitely not the place for an intimate dinner. We like it, and always have a fun time!
