We had terrible service and it wasn't very busy. Food was OK after we finally got it. Had to wait 15 minutes for any service and then another do even gets our drinks. Then another wait to order and an even longer wait to get our overpriced meals. Would not go here again.

We eat here for team lunches because it is close and the food isn't terrible. I would never eat there on my own though.

Good food. Lousy service, even with the restaurant not busy. Can find better Mexican food around with much better service.

This is the best Mexican food in the world hands down. Everything was hot, the cheese was melted, the rice was moist. Drinks were well crafted. The atmosphere makes you feel like you are in Mexico, beautiful architecture. On a scale from 1 to 10 this place is an 11.

I have been coming here ( Santa Clara location) since 80's and never being disappointed. I love the architecture of this restaurant. The food and service is awesome. Price is very reasonable. Try their Sunday brunch. You will not be disappointed.

The restaurant is huge! Right off the highway with lots of parking. It looked like the restaurant could accommodate large parties easily and at noon we could still hear ourselves talk. It was good for a business lunch. The restaurant opens at 11a not 4p as it said on this site. The menu is large and they have lunch specials... More

Very good Mexican food, was really impressed by this great restaurant especially the building is very nice to see for Europeans. The staff is friendly and helpful and you can choose from a broad selection of national and international beers.
