I attended an event here - they had a table with a large selection of their menu. I must say the selections were all very good. The sweet tea was very good. I know it is often hard to know about a local Mexican restaurant - trust me this one is very good.

I come here often as it's close to where I live. There are lots of really great dishes, my favorite being the pollo chipotle. The decor and atmosphere are so-so, but the food is excellent. Sometimes the service can be a bit slow.

I dined here with a large group of people -- the restaurant has a nice side room with plenty of space -- they even decorated our tables with festive balloons! The service was good and I enjoyed my food -- I ordered the taco and enchilada combo that comes with rice and beans. My friends enjoyed huge mugs of beer... More

Really enjoyed the chicken taco salad there. Good place to eat and great atmosphere. Service was very quick and never felt that we weren't being attended to properly.

Let me start by saying my wife hates this place and won't eat there. So yeah. But, for whatever reason, I kind of like it. Yes, some of the food tastes canned and frozen, but their chips and canned salsa aren't that bad. Tacos are serviceable too. Also, they are friendly there, if that matters at all. What I am... More

How anyone can go to this place when Los Hermanos is a few miles away is beyond me. I have eaten at this place twice and both times it was dismal. The chicken looked and tasted as if it came right out of a can. Don't bother.

Most food is frozen. You can definitely taste the freezer on the chile relleno. Drive a little further for better Mexican restaurants.

We had two different combinations, and both were rather uninteresting, if not dull. The chile relleno was fine, but the others were pretty much hamburger with some sauce plus a bit (but not much) more. Atmosphere was a bit sterile as well. I will note their fajitas certainly smelled good, so it could just be the combinations.
