We love mexican food and decided to stop. It was good with a lot of food. The atmosphere fit the theme. And the music too. I must say I was a little disappointed in the margarita. I ordered it blended but it was very crunchy...More

No vegetarian items listed, but the server was accommodating about adding beans to a dish. The food was okay, but I've had much better Mexican. The Margarita was good.

We stopped in for lunch. Friendly staff and quick service. We thought the prices were a little high for a small lunch portion. I ordered fajitas and my husband orders a chimi. His was very small, he ate part of mine. : ) Decent chips...More

The food and service was great. Nice place to eat and prices are good. Free chips and salsa. Drinks are priced well also.

In a way more of a tex-mex feel to the restaurant. Good overall food, with huge portion sizes.... they did tweak the menu a bit for northern Minnesota tastes. I highly suggest their lunch specials - they come out extremely fast, well priced and taste...More

I came to meet some clients for a business lunch and was rudely told by a dark haired man who said he owned the business to get out of my way I need to get through with food. I left.

The atmosphere is your typical Mexican decor. The food was average but the service was very good. They also have good margaritas.

The usual: bean burrito and guacamole. Both were really good. In fact, the guac had chunks of avocado in it, REALLY good. I was here a couple years ago. Liked it then, liked it today too! Visit this place, you won't be disappointed.

Family style restaurant, bright and colorful interior. Extensive menu. Quality food and large portions. Friendly service. Doesn't take very long to get your meals. Reasonably priced.

You can never go wrong with ordering anything on the menu. Prices are great, you get a lot of food for your money. Try the Enchiladas Poblanas, it is to die for....yum, yum.
