Good size drinks at a good price. The fish bowl is well worth getting. The food is good, wait staff is always friendly & super helpful if you don't know what to get. Wait time can be long depending on when you go but always...More

Went on a Friday night had the carna asada steak tacos and a shrimp chimichanga. The tacos were terrible they were not even seasoned. Complained to the manager. Will not be back.

This is our favorite Mexican food restaurant. We usually order the Texas Nachos and they are a meal in themselves. The Lunch and dinner specials are always good and very family friendly. We have seen parties there and luncheons. Good wait staff and Generous portions.

I've dined here nearly 100 times since this location has opened, and nothing has changed. The food is great, the margaritas are the best in NWI and the service is fantastic....if you haven't tried it you are missing out!!
