As a lover of Mexican I came here due to its good reviews. Went for the carne asada and besides the usual rice and beans on the side I saw you could also get pasta poblano. Knowing nothing about it I gave it a try...More

My husband and I just brought our family here for the first time since we graduated from college in 2004 and the restaurant had moved and apparently the good service did not move with it. We even celebrated our college graduation with both sides of...More

The menu is large but the food is average to OK. The four of us were seated and waited on quickly. We each ordered something different and we all had differing opinions of the food. OK for something quick but it is not cheap.

Sadly, this restaurant just continues to go downhill. It started when they moved to a much nicer building. There was a lot of new staff and a lot of turn around. The old location always felt like "home" whereas the new place felt quite cliquish...More
