Was here with about 12 on a business trip. The setting is pleasant and appropriate to the cuisine creating a beautiful experience. I ordered pork medallions with enchiladas. The medallions were wrapped in bacon, tender, and delicious. Cooked to perfection. The enchiladas and whipped potatoes were also tasty. Food came warm and ready to dig into. All parties were complimentary... More

You are served chips and salsa for free. They provide several salsas. I love the original (red). The entries are all modestly priced and all taste good. The flan for dessert is definitely the highlight. You must try this!!!

This place is the real deal. The portions are generous, the plates are hot, the drinks are reasonably priced and the food is fantastic. Go early because it fills up quickly

The food here was so good. We got the chips and dip combo appetizer and i had a burrito filled with all my favorite things. Service really good, too. It was too bright in there though i thought. i didn't realize this was a chain because i've never seen it before. Will go back if i ever see another one.

Last visit I had was wonderful. First off the venue feels like you are in Vegas (caesars palace). Food is delicious haven't been disappointed the numerous times I've been over the last 8 years. Chips are delicious! If you like spice.. ask for their habanero salsa. Good venue for dates, groups, family, business etc.

We love the food and can either share an entrée or each have a lunch at any time of day. Seniors can use lunch menu all day.

This had been a 'go-to' spot but then had a bad experience several years ago so avoided it for a long time. Decided to give it a try with better than expected results. Did call for reservations in advance for a Saturday night visit, probably wasn't needed, but the place was busy so would still recommend reservations just in case.... More

Five of us stopped in for a treat, We ordered green salsa, tacos, and salads with chicken. It came out reasonably fast, very hot, and delicious. I want to try several other dishes next.

While the food is great, I want to speak to the service at this place. They had a meal with corn tortillas and I'm not really a fan of those but the meal sounded amazing. I asked if they could make them with flour and they stepped up and said they would make the meal the way I like it.... More
