When we walked in we were encouraged that most tables were occupied. The food though was really just average even considering the low prices. I think I would prefer to spend a bit more money for a meal at Mex or Huerte when in the mood for Mexican. My wife really did not care for the vegetarian platter. The ribeye... More

Stopped in this week for lunch. Initially it was pretty chilly but the staff turned up the heat so all could be comfortable. I had the chili rellenos plate with cheese inside and my husband had the special Chiles en Nogada. Both were delicious. Mine was served with spanish rice and refried beans and his with white rice and chopped... More

We've been here several times before in their old location on 12 mile. It was always just ok. They've recently moved to a strip mall on Orchard lake road just south of 13 mile. It's nicer inside than their old loc. BUT, we went on a Tuesday evening around 6:45. Took forever to get waited on and even longer wait... More

I've been to several Mexican restraunts, and this was one of my least favorites. Chips were stale and thick. Salsa was ok. Meals were not great. Would not recommend going here if you want good, Mexican food.

Went here with friends before a meeting. Margarita was great. I had enchiladas which were great. Friends enjoyed the fajitas. Queso was good and plentiful. Service was quick and friendly.

This place was way better than expected. Its in an area where u can get anything u want to eat. every drive thru and pizza possible. I ordered a shrimp burrito type meal. Everything was so fresh and yummy, even my ice tea tasted freshly made. server was very nice and prices are comparable for the area.

I hadn't been in this place in about 3 years and decided it was time to try it again. I went with a fellow retiree for lunch. I ordered the luncheon special, 2 tacos Barbacoa with beans and rice. My buddy had 2 enchilladas verdes with beans and rice. The order included the complimentary chips and salsa. The salsa was... More

Food is ok. Service is horrible. Only been here twice. The first time they said there was a charge for salsa and chips. What type of Mexican restaurant charges extra for salsa and chips!? Tried it again, no charge for chips and salsa. Still horrible service

I very rarely post complaints regarding poor service, but this time I could not hold back. This was not the first time I had eaten here and have had okay experiences in the past but we came back because the food will do when you're in the mood for some Mexican food. So this time we returned and It started... More
