We came for dinner and margaritas. Had a nice meal and a little "show" with the preparation of guacamole at the table. The food was very good and the "tiny" margarita was shared by three of us!

We have been here a few times and the food is consistently good. The service is also good. There is usually about a ten minute wait for the table but it's worth it. This is the best Mexican food around!

I never tire of this Mexican food. On this visit my husband ordered Quesadilla Rellena ($12.95) and I had a Veggie Quesadilla ($11.95). Staff were courteous and the meal came quickly. We would recommend this restaurant if you're hungry for Mexican.

Seating has not been an issue but I have not been there during peak season yet; the food is so good it would be worth the wait.
