We should have walked out when we noticed the place was empty. Salsa and drinks were good, but meal was bad. My daughter and I had chimps which were greasy and tasteless. The meat was dry as well. Go elsewhere for Mexican food.

Hadn't been here in a few years so decided to stop in since we were in the area - sat outside on the patio and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the giant margaritas - will definitely return...

Good Mexican food. Spicy beans, good salsa, good service. Not so amazing to be worth a drive clear across the valley, but a place I'll return to when in the area.

Looking for a quick Mexican food fix and stumbled on to this place. Not fancy or pretentious. Was delighted to have happy hour choices. Margaritas hit the spot! Cheese crisp and chimichangas were great!

We LOVE this place. Please please please open up in Vegas!!!!! This photo is of a White Sands Chimi. TDF with pork and Hatch green chiles and queso on top. So good. Excellent salsa also.

We were looking for more authentic Mexican food. This is not the place. If you want so-so food, this is good enough then. Mid range priced for a Mexican restaurant.

The food is always good. Best salsa around! They had some issues with servers not showing up on time so we were stuck in the bar. Benefit was 1/2 off appetizers!

We started going here some 8 years now but our last visit just may be the last. I think the pressure of a quality product has gotten to them. Over microwaved meal and worst microwaved lettuce, REALLY?? Who does that. Love the Hatch green chile menu but take some time and do it right, again.

My wife and i, and one of our friends recently went and our service was horrible. We elected to sit on the patio and it was as if we didn't exist until our food arrived. We ordered an appetizer that came at the same time or dinner did so that made no sense. Over all food was mediocre my wife... More

We stopped here for food and drink after a sporting event. The margaritas were excellent. I like that they brought nachos and dip to snack on. We sat at the bar and had a good conversation with the bartender. A good visit.

Thank Phil G
