I would say this is an above average chain restaurant. What makes it is the unlimited nacho chips and salsa. We ordered a side of delicious queso for the chips. The Buffalo style shrimp tacos were delicious with a nice kick in the hit sauce....More

This is a pretty good spot. I'm not a Mexican food fan, but even I found something at this place! It's off Rt. 1 in a shopping center, so lookout for it and don't miss the turn!

We have eaten here a couple of times, and the food was good. It is good, yet average, chain restaurant food. Server was very good and attentive. We have never seen it crowded, so I doubt reservations would ever be necessary.

My fiance and I went there this past week for dinner. We were able to walk right in without a wait, which was great. I'm from Texas, so I'm always looking for good Tex-Mex, and this is close to where I live. The service wasn't...More
