Have eaten there regularly and have never been disappointed. Service, prices, quality and quantity are great. My wife cannot eat spicy food - we have asked them to prepare various menu items without strong spices and they have complied with no problems. Enjoy eating here.

The food and atmosphere is always great. The prices are awesome and you get a lot for the money. My 10 year old son always enjoy this spot. We have been coming for years and are never disappointed.

Very slow service, 4 dead flys on the window sill, floors dirty, no toilet paper in the bathroom. Waited forever to get out bill, and were never asked if we wanted to take the leftovers home. Food was ok but we have had much better.

The new location is easy to find on Sam's Pt. Rd, plenty of parking too. They spent a lot on the remodel and it shows. Great decor, classy booths and a huge bar area. Service was exceptional, food was average but I'm going back and try different dishes. I had the mixed fajitas- came all on one skillet, not a... More

The servings are huge and the prices are low. The staff is friendly and courteous and service is quick. A great place to eat alone, with friends, or family.

Best Mexican Restaurant in town. Service is fast and friendly. Although Taco Burger has decent Tacos too but atmosphere here tops it
