Wife and I went here last night and it was great. First the decor is really done well both inside and out. They went the extra mile in this regard. We ordered the queso and beef dip and were both surprised at how much they gave us. It was twice what most places provide. It was also really good. We... More

This is not a place i would recommend to anyone. Food and service was nothing to write home about or even talk about later. Not sure but it would seem the one on university Parkway may be closed. Not a loss that will be mourned. There are plenty of other Mexican places to eat where you'll have decent variety and... More

5 family members went for a good Mexican meal out, we all ate something different and everything was excellent, with drinks only $17 per person. Good service too. Very busy and can be a wait but we were there at 5pm when they opened so we could get a booth. Nice atmosphere, good staff, prompt service. Already planning for our... More

We ordered the special margarita for happy hour and were quite pleased! I had the shrimp quesadilla and loved it too. Good food and great service.

First we were there on a Tuesday when they had a five piece mariachi band. The restaurant is small and the music overwhelmed the space. It was impossible to carry on a conversation. Secondly, we thought that the food was terrible. Both of our dishes had chicken in it. The chicken was way overcooked and dry. The food was not... More

Monday is when the mariachi band is playing and they are talented! The whole evening was perfect. The large margaritas need two hands to pick up the glass, the fajitas and quesadilla are de-lish and the service is excellent. The chicken in both dishes were fresh and not pre-packaged from the grocery store. Washrooms are clean and good. While we... More

There was 7 of us. Staff very friendly. Excellent wait staff. The food was awesome and we enjoyed every bite. Prices are reasonable. Decorated nicely. Close to Town Center Mall for a shop and dine experience.

First time we have been there. Nothing fancy but nice homely cantina feel. Quite late in the evening by the time we got there so the place was emptying out, seemed like a lot of birthday party groups leaving. Friendly staff, OK food, fajitas for me, pollo Zaragoza for my wife, both probably a bit overlooked but nothing to really... More

When you walk up to the restaurant it does look like a cute pueblo. The service was good. The menu is fairly standard but they do have a lot of nice lunch specials during the week (not on weekends). I ordered the tacos de camarones. It was served with double tortillas, a few shrimp, a little bit of mango salsa,... More

The staff are all so friendly here and the food is delicious. You'll crave it for days after. Some favorites are the enchiladas suizas, pollo zaragoza and the Carne asada. If you go on a Friday they have the freshest Carnitas tacos... that's a real treat. I also love their selections of quality tequilas and even mezcal! Great atmosphere and... More
