Nothing authentic about this Mexican restaurant, but the food is edible. The burritos are very large and sharable. Chips and salsa are okay, but not great. Friendly service, but a bit slow.

Got the Border Sampler with a $5 off digital coupon. It was great! Friendly service at a really good price, chips & salsa. What's not to love!

My 1st visit. Nice menu. Many choices. I had a chicken on a green salad. Very tasty but I though they skimpy on the chicken. Great friendly service.

I had a chicken chimichanga and my husband had the brisket tacos. Both were delicious and our server Danielle was awesome. This place is definitely going to be a regular for us!

The food was good and the service was ok but not great. We had to ask for drink refills and I finally got our napkins and eating utensils myself.

The food was very good however the service, while friendly, was lacking. We had a party of four people, and after placing our order it took 35-minutes to get three of the dishes which were lukewarm, then 5 more minutes to get the final order which was screaming hot. Not sure how they did this. Water glasses sat empty and... More

We really appreciate the consistently good quality of the food, the service, AND the margaritas! We usually go there mid-afternoon and that's us for the day! The wait staff is on the ball making sure you have enough tostados and salsa while waiting for your order. The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed and we always enjoy dining there.
