Good food, good prices, good service. Plenty of booze in the Margaritas. I really like the vegetarian fajitas. Not really fancy, just really good!

My wife and I were surprised by the variety of offerings on the buffet. It's been a long, long time since we've run across such a variety. The quality of the food for a buffet was way above average

We had a quick lunch at this restaurant, great chips and salsa and delicious chicken fajitas, very tasty. The fried beans were very good along with the guacamole side. We enjoyed the service and the ambiance of the restaurant. It got quite crowded for lunch. Price was OK.

I am so glad we found this place. The menu offers lots of choice and there is a very well stocked buffet and the food is hot. We went at lunch so I'm not sure if the buffet is offered at dinner. The service is very friendly and prompt. I had the buffet and my spouse ordered enchiladas from the... More

I am so happy that we found this place again. We ate here twice when we went to Universal Studios 4 years ago. We went twice again this time as well. Their tacos al pastor took me back to El Fogon in Playa del Carmen. Everything we tried was just great. Service is very friendly and pricing is very fair... More

My friends and I finished a Color Run 5K yesterday & we found this place for lunch. Note: We cleaned up after the race. This place is small but makes good use of their space. The menu was unique and had a short section that explained what items were and how they are pronounced. They have a sweet buffet with... More

Leaving Florida to go back home to Ga. Picked here over Outback because rating were better and Mexican is my favorite. Was well worth it. They closed in hour but they were still friendly fast and food was delicious. To make it better they gave me a free Birthday fried Ice cream. 😊

King Quesadilla my favorite, then pork tacos- so tender and burried in fresh cilantro... Homemade queso phenomenal! Margaritas delicious. Attentive service. Great local place where you don't need a reservation and reasonably priced.
