Chip & salsa plentiful. Service very attentive. Salsa a little on the spicy side. Had the tamale, cheese quesadilla, & beef enchiladas. Sauce was good. Cheese quesadilla wax a white cheese. Dip queso, fundido was good, & main did carnitas with beans & rice.

Food was good. Sort of your basic Mexican restaurant with the regular menu items. Nothing fancy but still we had a very nice meal. Service was good. People were friendly. Restaurant was clean. We will return.

This is the third in the chain that we've eaten at now and were very pleased as usual. Mexican ambiance, Zesty dishes, Friendly servers. Oh and the price is always right with their daily specials.

The food at this location was excellent. We enjoyed it so much that we went back three times in one week. They have a wonderful menu with a lot of variety. The food is authentic and delicious. I highly recommend it.

Wasn't impressed with the "pre-mixed" top shelf margarita....it was loaded down with syrup. Salsa was the highlight....bold and spicy! Quesadillas were mediocre...

You probably won't even notice this spot if you are driving down Union Avenue be because the windows seem to be blacked out OR I'm a Horrible driver. Either way, it's a pretty cool spot for some quick service. There is no pomp and circumstance...More

Average food, average service, average experience. This is okay in a pinch but I usually seek more interaction and a higher level of service.
