Not sure what is going on with the reviews here, but my experience was positive. We had the most authentic Mexican food ever. We had buffet as we were with a group so there was about 20 choices. Everything was fresh, home made, and authentic. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Big disappointment. Chicken burritos had more gristle than chicken, sangria was a joke - no booze, no fruit. Coffee came out luke warm and only 2 desserts. Server was pleasant and attentive.

Though we walked in at 9pm on weeknight, they happily served us along with our 4 year old. They made her feel very welcome, which went a long way with her parents. The food was good, the prices were reasonable and they had a few drinks that were unique. We liked the food so much that we got takeout the following evening. If you like Mexican food, you won't be disappointed here.

Mexican food was fresh and prepared well. The bar area filled up with 20-something professionals around 6:00 pm. If you're in that group, this would be a good place to meet people. Drink prices are standard for the City, which means high. A bit understaffed for the size of the crowd, so wait service in the dining area was not very attentive.
