We checked out recent reviews and chose the restaurant based on fairly decent reviews. The food was disappointing. Everything was fairly bland. Wait staff was great - food not so great.

My wife and I were here Nov. 11th. Service was quirky. We got our drinks within 10 minutes. It took another twenty minutes for our food order and twenty-five more minutes for the food to arrive. Poor attention to our table after that. We had to ask for our check. Food was O.K. I had shrimp with rice and my... More

It doesn't look like much from the outside but this place is amazing. It's connected to a hotel which caught me off guard. But once inside the food is amazing and really reasonably priced. Definitely worth it!

cold the food is good and reasonably priced. Everyone treated here as a worthy quest. Everything I ate was first rate so my guess all the menu items are great. Service was fast, accurate and perfect. Hope you visit here equals mine.

We went two nights in a row a few weeks ago while in the area for events at GALOT Motorsports Park. It's conveniently located within the same building at the Quality Inn we stayed in. The service was fast and sufficient, the food was really good. We'll be back soon when we return for other races.

All I really have to say is it took forever to get waited on and to get our food when we got our food. The food was fine, but the we wanted to place an order to go and they never came back. Took a while to even get our check. Food was very good but don't know that I... More

Located in the same building as a quality Inn and just off the interstate, we did not expect much, but due to some positive Trip Adviser reviews, we decided to try it. Food quality, quantity and service were as good as we have found at any Mexican restaurant.
