Family type restaurant. Typical Mexican food. Nothing stands out as unique. Inconsistent service. No Happy Hour. Pricey. There are better Mexican restaurants near by. I live near this place and I very rarely attend because of previous comments. They do have music. It’s not very...More

Our group of 3 would all give our lunch experience a 5 star rating. Staff was very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The atmosphere is good, though very informal and bare / basic. The restaurant is very large and most seating is at tables with chairs....More

Delicious food and a huge selection to choose from. House margs here are among the best I've had (usually they are too limey or sweet). The service was great and the building goes on forever, so there are lots and lots of tables.
