Conveniently located right off the interstate. We were seated and given chips and salsa right away. The salsa was very good, as was the hot salsa. Grilled jalapeños were cooked just right, and were pretty hot. Beans were a little soupy and salty for my taste, but not bad at all. Red sauce on the burrito was flavorful. Overall, a... More

Had a post Graduation Lunch for 14. The restaurant is large and had the table set uo and reserved in advance. The food is good and the Margarita's were great. Lots of specials for food and drinks. Service was good but they did not anticipate graduation weekend at Purdue and the staff was a bit overwhealmed.

Started with a draft Dos Equis in a frosted mug. The chips were hot and the salsa had a kick, but the entree (taco and enchilada) were just OK - ground beef imstead of shredded amd canned sauce. The rice and beans were just OK, too. Service was prompt amd friendly. One pet peeve: there are way too many big... More

We ordered premium margaritas, and they were excellent. Chips and salsa were typical. My husband had steak fajitas, and they were great. Prices were fair for the amount of food, not overpriced. We will definitely go back when in the area.
