Poor service with lots of servers and few patrons. My Burrito Deluxe was 90% pork; or I should say 50% overcooked pork and 40% gristle and fat. The chicken in my wife's burrito was overcooked and dry. Typical cheap stereotypical Mexican décor. You get a...More

Yes, the portions are big. Enough for leftovers, but not sure you will want them. The food was bland and the meats dry. I had chicken, dried out cubes. Margaritas were fair. Would not go back.

We’ve enjoyed most items listed in the menu. But, our overall favorite is the the pollo tropical with large pieces of grilled chicken, sautéed onions, peppers and pineapple sprinkled with Mexican cheese all with a side of rice and lettuce with crema. Fantastic!

Always a great meal. A large menu. I have never been disappointed here. Great location, big bar, private rooms. We bring big groups here once a year. You won't be disappointed!

Not bad, but I would not go back. It is on a corner of I-25 and I-25A. The place used to be very charming, with model railroad trains passing overhead. Then, when Elena took over, these charming things were all ripped out. The food was...More
