Service sucks here! Wait staff all over but they don't have it together at all. Walked in and stood there and nobody acknowledged that I was there they were too busy watching the game and socializing. Food was good.

I loved my taco salad with chicken until the middle of the night when I realized, MSG. My son-in-law enjoyed his fajitas and was more than he could eat; he also enjoyed the Margareta , My son liked his enchiladas. I regret the low rating but they should warn you.

We dine here often and have never had a bad meal. LOVE the staff!! I enjoy the steak quesadilla. Their chips and salsa are some of the best we've had. Chips are thin and crisp!

We have dined here many times and found this to be the best experience for us each time. To start out, they have happy hours most evenings. The fresh warm chips and salsa are the best in town. The food is reasonably priced, nice serving portions and nicely presented and very tasty so it suits our taste just fine. The... More

We really liked the margaritas and the food was pretty good. For a large group especially we thought that it was wonderful - very open and accommodating.

A solid Mexican restaurant with a bar and beers on tap. I found the service a bit brash and disinterested. Food is standard fare, nothing too special, with prices a bit higher than you might expect from restaurants of this caliber. It's a good spot to stop into for a snack while you wait to have your car washed across... More

We stopped here for Sunday lunch and were not disappointed. It was a good, moderately priced Mexican eatery with nice atmosphere and good service. Not the best I've had but fully adequate and a pleasant place to dine. I had a variety of tamales, and they were very good.
