Firstly, the service is excellent. The staff made sure we were satisfied the entire time we were there. Secondly, the food was great- chips, dips, and entrees...and more than enough of each. Thirdly, the price was much lower than one could expect. Fourthly, we will definitely return!

I had ordered a takeout for 10 and found that not only were they generous with the portion sizes, could have fed double that but the food was delicious as well!

The food was fulfilling, authentic, and plentiful! I am now addicted to the rice water and bean dip!! The food is fresh, the staff were always nice and friendly! I have been twice and intend to go again! Outstanding!

We frequent this restaurant at least one or two times a month. For US, the food is consistently well-prepared and delicious. We always get great service. We tend to go for lunch rather than dinner but I've also been on a Sunday after church and it was just as good. I was very surprised at some of the reviews that... More

I ate at the McHenry location for dinner a couple of weeks ago on a Monday night around 7pm. We walked in and were seated right away. The place seemed to be busy / crowded, but as I passed tables I noticed that many of the customers were already eating their meals, so I took that as a good sign.... More

We went for a birthday dinner... They had no seating for five people.. my husband had to sit in the aisle.. It was very cramped and you could hear the conversations of the people smashed in next to you.. The food was average.. The salsa was poor.. The staff was sweet and attentive but that just isn't enough!!!

This is a lovely restaurant. We went to the McHenry location near Granger. The staff was friendly and courteous. Enjoyed their bean dip and chips and salsa. But then our main courses arrived. My husband says he prefers more traditional food, he had a beef and chorizo taco. I always order 'the basics' the first time I go to a... More

That is the ticket. We were with another couple food and drink were all good. Chicken and shrimp were really great. Steak okay. Beans and rice both fresh made and good.

This place was recommended to us by the desk clerk at our hotel and it did not disappoint. East parking, wonderful chips and dips (bean dip and salsa!), and the food was just delicious. Would come back in a heartbeat if I am again in Modesto.
