Ask for Kelsley and you will have a great meal. Fish tacos great. Have Kelsley get you a house on rocks with a shot.

I have to assume our server was new. Brought a lemon out for my friend's water with his hands - not even on a plate! Two orders of food were wrong. Couldn't keep our drinks refilled in a timely manner. The food was not good. The chips smelled like old oil, the food was hardly warm, and it didn't matter... More

After having a great tasting meal we checked our bill to find an error. We ordered a larger beer with a small up charge. We were told by the waiter that the added beer would be $1.59 more. This is what the waiter was trained to say. The bill had an added charge of $2.59. Surprise! When we complained, the... More

You can't go wrong with such a place. Friendly environment and service, great selection of food and good margaritas. It gets busy at times but they have a high turn-around time.

I'm a big margarita lover and visit a lot of mexican restaurants just for that reason. This place has the best margaritas I've had in a long, long while! Their chips and salsa is wonderful, too! They're light, crispy and fresh. The food is awesome! Not greasy like most mexican places.

I eat here at least 3 times a month and fid the staff extremely friendly, attentive and efficient. The food is also very consistent and extremely good. It is nice to find good food and great service that you can count on to be the same, each and every time.

My husband and I had a wonderful lunch experience. I could not give them a rating of "5" because we were seated in a busy area which wasn't really necessary because they were not that busy. But, as caregivers to my mother who lives with us, I did not want to spoil even a second of our time alone. The... More

We were greeted and seated immediately. Our server was very attentive and professional even though the restaurant was crowded. The serving portion was good and we also ended up with leftovers to take with us.

Had lunch with my daughter here. Chips and salsa were good. Waiter recommended brisket tacos which I ordered with black beans. When the plate came out it was with refried beans. One of the tacos was good. The other the meat was dry.
