While I like Mexican Resterants many taste the same to me. This was good. What really made my night though, it was weekly special priced Margaritas. Cold, LARGE and slightly strong. Right up my alley. I wasn't driving!

Service just O.K. Did not tell us there was a salsa bar but not anything to write home about. Food was bland and not worth my money. Cancun up the road on same side is much better in every way. Will not be back.

We get take out just about every weekend. It's always very fresh, hot and they give very generous portions. The staff is always nice. We've had great experiences going on 2 years, every weekend.

One of regular places. Food great, service is excellent and has a great salsa bar. The cheap margarita nights are always a plus. The menu has a wide variety and they are accommodating if you want to have a menu item fixed differently.

Great food at a good price. I wish they served the salsa at the table rather than having to get up, but it's very good.
