Excited to try out this newest restaurant in the McCandless Crossings area but were very disappointed in the food. Very bland black bean soup and the Quesidias tasted like they had cheese whiz in them. Not very Mexican like at all.

If you like Mexican food, skip this place. The location is prime, the restaurant is clean with nice decor so we were hoping the food would be good. My favorite way to test a Mexican restaurant is to try the chicken soup. Usually it’s great...More

Second time visiting the new location. Both were for fundraisers. Both times the drinks were good but the food was bland. Service was good.

We had good service .... admittedly it was early in the evening. Place seemed clean and friendly but we didn't go deep inside. The food was just OK. Sort of south-western for gringos. Not that it was poor quality just geared for the masses.

I had the fajitas here and there were great! The homemade wraps, and the plentiful amount of meat, veggies and toppings was perfect. Don't forget the Corona! I actually split a single fajita meal with my wife and it was ample for both of us....More

Parking is challenging on a weekend night. We were lucky to find a spot on the street almost a block away. The atmosphere seemed like college bar meets Mexican restaurant. Indeed, there was a group walking all over the restaurant and engaged in horseplay at...More

I ordered the California burrito with grilled chicken stuffing and a side salad. The burrito was grilled after it was assembled which gave the tortilla a burnt taste; I found the sauce that was to be poured over the burrito to have a very strange...More
