The Salsa and Chips were the best I have ever had. The food was very disappointing. They are so busy trying to make nice presentation on the plate that they forgot about what the food tastes like. There are a lot of restaurants in the area. Pick another one. I now know why we were the only customers there.

My older son and his family had recently moved to Collierville, Tennessee. This restaurant was recommended. Prior to airport departure , we stopped with our daughter -in-law and 4 children. I was surprised that for a Christmas vacation week that it was about 30% occupied. But our lunch experience confirmed why. The food was particularly bland and poorly presented .... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant on a date for lunch. We had nothing to do for the day (Mom's in town watching kids) so we enjoyed food and adult beverages. The place was not crowded and the service was not great but I wouldn't say the worst ever. We ordered margaritas. They are one of our favorite drinks... More

There are a number of Mexican restaurants in the Memphis area. I'll try the others before I return to this one. Initial service was slow and the place was not crowded. The follow up service to check on drinks, inquire as to other service such as dessert was absolutely terrible. All and all the food was 'average' and nothing to... More

I reviewed this restaurant a couple of years or so ago and found it to be excellent. So, when we moved back to Germantown, TN, we decided to go there for some good Mexican food. Boy, was that ever a bad decision. We arrived at a little after 7:00 on a Tuesday night. Only five tables were occupied. We were... More

My favorite Mexican food ever. Even the basics are anything but. Great rice, beans and if you try only one thing, it has to be the Choriqueso. Epic in house, reheats fantastic and is to die for. Love this place.

We visited this restaurant on a Friday evening for dinner. There was no wait and there was plenty of tables available. Our server came over and took our drink orders but did not know if there was any drink specials nor did she have a drink menu to give us. We placed our order for drinks and an appetizer. While...

An excellent meal for the money. You get a generous supply of chicken with the Taco Salad and the salsa is probably the best in the city.We ordered the El Proton dip with it and it was a great meal for around $20.

Okay so the food is better than most Mexican restaurants and the service is great. They have home made salsa and great chicken fajitas. It is worth a visit every few months or so, a sort for family gatherings. It is my second favorite Mexican restaurant in the area.
