We were just driving through Tallahassee on a Sunday and happened to see how many cars there were in the parking lot. We had the fish tacos which were delicious, and Margaritas, which were wonderful. Very nice staff.

My daughter and I were in town from Texas for the Red Hills Horse Trials. We always like to find a local Mexican restaurant and this one was really good. She liked their enchiladas and I thought the Jalisco nachos with steak, chicken and shrimp were excellent. The chips were pretty good but the salsa was great. Margaritas were a... More

This is a great place to eat with your special someone or have a bunch of friends for a get together. They are very friendly and are always attentive to us when we go. We had a big group a few months ago and no one was left out or forgotten, no one had to return their meal and everyone... More

Why eat at a fast food place when you can get better food at just about the same price for lunch? They have decent service, atmosphere and food for the price.

Overall a great resturant for a Sunday dinner. Went around 4pm before the crowd came in. Food, Service, and staff were great. They were friendly and very attentive.

Great food, fresh and very tasty. Busy night, but service could have been a little faster. Very loud for a non bar environment. Will go again though.

Although the service this time was not very good the food is predicable and pretty good. The guacamole and cheese dip were tasty but the beans lacked seasoning. I don't really like the new menu as it eliminated a lot of the a la carte options. This is turning into a chain like restaurant, which is not a good thing!

The food was extremely basic. I ordered a Mexican salad with chicken. For $8 (lunch), it tasted bland and less than homemade. My husband order a cheese enchilada with beans and rice. It too was bland. Oh, the lemonade was TERRIBLE ($2.50). It taste like bottled lemon juice and water nothing else. I was extremely disappointed with this place. When... More
