Do not order the tamales nor the chicken soup. It is a place that is ok when you want Mexican food but it has too much variation on the quality of the food. The rice water is excellent

This place has great Mexican food and the tacos are great. They also have great lunch specials so even those people on a budget can eat good.

The service isn't always the best but the food is great! We have been to both locations but prefer Tequilas Too on Union Rd. They have the best salsa.

We've given their other location a few chances now, and we always enjoy the food but the service is just always bad. We're pretty low maintenance, but having to flag people down for a drink or the check isn't right. So we thought we'd try...More
