We always love the food but it has become such a let down with rude waitstaff continuously trying to take your plate away and shoo you out the door for the next person! So bad I have several friends that Refuse to go back because of it. The bartender is fantastic! Some of the best Frozen Margaritas around. Go in... More

I would like the opportunity to correct the inappropriate behavior you encountered at our restaurant. Would you be so kind as to let me know which date you dined here so I may know who your server was. If you would consider giving us another chance I would like the opportunity to treat you to dinner. You can email me... More

One of the best restaurants in the area. I've never found found anything on the menu that I didn't enjoy. The staff is warm, friendly, and helpful. Come on a date, bring your family, plan a party, whatever you want, they are more than happy to accommodate your every need.

Authentic cuisine! Best margaritas ever! Coconut is the best. Wonderful service: ask for JORDAN. She knows the menu and makes great suggestions. PROS: -food quality -options -enchiladas and burgers are killer + great salads (try the jicama) -portions = huge burritos -homemade chippies! -outdoor seating -attentive, happy staff CONS: -sometimes there's a wait for a table -could be more affordable...

The highlight of our long weekend in Kingston was dinner here. The owner and wait staff were friendly, gracious and accommodating. Free tortilla chips and dips, plus free refills. The most delicious margaritas on the rocks -- perfectly made, generously sized, and not overly sweet as is often the case. The menu is huge. Anything Tex-Mex you could possibly want,... More

I'm not always crazy about Mexican food, but this food is first rate. It's great fresh quality ingredients and the margaritas are good too! The staff is very friendly. I've always had a positive experience here over many many visits.

On a very hot day we wanted to try this Mexican restaurant. We had our dogs and were welcomed inside. Dogs given water immediately and when our delicious food was served, the pups received packets of chicken. Wonderful food and love of dogs will bring us back over and over again
