This restaurant was clean and had efficient, friendly service. I had the grilled Mahi tacos and found them tasty. The food was reasonably priced.

Liked their queso. The hard shell tacos were huge. Didn't really care for the red sauce on the enchilada. Refried beans and rice were good. The chips and salsa were wonderful. Our waitress didn't check back often until she brought the check. Had to wait until then to get water refills.

The service was excellent! The fish tacos were a little disappointing; deep fried a little too long. I took off the batter & ate the fish. Perhaps there could be a grilled fish taco option?? Other than that, it's great food and service!

We are from Central IL and have lost 2 of our favorite Mexican chain restaurants - Carlos O Kellys and Chi Chis. This was a great mix of the two. Recommend the caramel churros. The cheese dip isn't the white kind - it's velveeta with salsa in it. Oh, the one salsa was HOT HOT HOT. Just the way I... More

Got started a little late because a waitress was late in arriving to work. Once we got started the commitment to a memorable experience was set in motion. The manager, waitress and food were the best. Of couuse we'd return...great evening with friends.

Good location right off of the 60 at Power. The service was excellent. They had specials for every day of the week. I had the lunch portion fajita special. The meat was perfectly prepared as were the veggies. Everything was perfect! I could not have had a better dining experience.

The title pretty much sums it up. Large margaritas for $4, very small and tasteless 50 cent tacos and horrible service in the bar area. The server didn't want to be there and I felt like I was putting him out anytime I asked him for something. He was slow and had no personality at all. May go back for... More

We stop by here for lunch from time to time. LIke to sit on the patio, weather permitting. No view, but pleasant none the less. Can't recommend the steak fajatias, tough. The shrimp ones are great. Service okay, depending on your waiter.
