Very average Mexican restaurant, it might be the best around here but it's only mediocre if you're a Mexican food lover like me. Service and prices were good, and quite a big menu as well. Food lacked flavor and was quite bland. Large portions and...More

The food was great! The service was unacceptable. They messed up the drink orders, and did not bring half of my order. I had to ask 3 different servers before receiving the remainder of my meal. I spoke to the manager and explained the situation...More
