Had dinner here with my wife on a recent trip. The food is fine, nothing fantastic, if you think that Mexican Food is lots of cheese with a few beans, this isn't the place for you! They serve very little cheese in and on their food. The service was on the weak side, slow and erratic! My title "A bunch... More

Plus the patio on the back, just nice, it was very nice.... More

I came here 3 years ago, and loved the food and service, so I was very disappointed when we came here to eat this time. The restaurant was at least half empty, but the service took forever. 3 of us ordered Fajitas and when they were delivered the server said that they ran out of the sizzling platters and also...

So we went on a Friday night. They play live music. The singer was very good and entertaining. We had Antonio for our server. He was prompt and courteous. The food was excellent. I recommend the Mexican blue corn taco plate. It's the best.

Food here is delicious. We had dinner here twice and both occasions food was top notch. Burritos are safe bet and the steak fajita for 2 is tasty.

This is my second visit in the past two months. My daughter and I ate here in January of this year and then again this past Saturday. The January visit was excellent in all respects of table services, great customer service upon entering the restaurant and when leaving. Food was hot in temperature and fresh. Beans tasted like beans, lettuce... More

We had a fabulous waiter and excellent food. It was a chance to sample some New Mexico specialities in addition to more standard tex-mex fare. Everything was tasty, and the staff paid close attention to the food allergies in our group. Highly recommend!

The salsa was good with fresh cilantro. The plate was your typical rice and beans arrangement. The chile rellenos were a little soggy but edible.
