It was okay but I had better. The food was just okay nothing special about it. The drinks were not that good either.

Food was tasteless and greasy, margaritas watery. Extremely expensive for a disappointing meal. Would never go back!

I’ve been here three times now. The tacos, fajitas, and enchiladas are on point and full of the flavors you’d expect in authentic southwestern cuisine. Their meat is tender and their margaritas at happy hour are perfect. Love this place.

The fajitas were good but the beans and rice were dry and very blan. I’ve had much better rice and beans at Taco Bell. Not enough guacamole nor sour cream for the meal. I’ll not go back.

The service was really good. The food was overpriced though. The flavor was okay. It's just a mediocre place in a good location.

When we got there they told us 25 min wait. It took 45 - 60 min. After we were seated it took another hour to get food. Once the food arrived it was good. Waitress was friendly but very over worked.

Had a really good dinner. The food was very good. Hot sauce and chips were kept full and service overall was good. Will be back!

I was impressed by the delicious food and fast, friendly service. Even though they were busy on a Friday night, we were seated quickly and received our food and drinks fast. The staff were friendly and professional.
