I didn't stay here long as we met friends late and had to leave pretty quickly but the things I noticed were plenty of seating and waiters and waittresses.  Food was okay.  I hear certain nights of the week they have a Mariachi band

The food was good. My husband and I had the buffet. The buffet was about to be done. The waitress asked us if we were done before they took the food. Thought that was nice of them! The staff was very nice and helpful. The restaurant is clean. Good place to eat!

I selected this restaurant after a recommendation from someone who lives here. The atmosphere is definitely Mexican. Margaritas are huge and if you come before 7pm its 2 for 1 happy hour. We couldn't finish all our food so we had lunch for the next day. Everything was delicious including the fried ice cream. The mariachi band played happy birthday... More

We decided to try this place since it was near home and it was a spur of the moment decision . I guess hindsight really is 20/20 . To start they somehow managed to burn tortilla chips . And still served them. The guacamole was sub par. Very little flavor and way to much jalapeno . I had the enchiladas... More

I don't recommend this place. The food was horrible. Even the guacamole was gross. How do you mess up guacamole?? Service was ok, but I would recommend Taco bell over this place any day.

I was not a big fan of their other location but my wife wanted to try their other location. And I am glad we did! The food was great and so was the service.

We had a party of 8. We did not call in and they were able to accommodate us immediately. The server recommended several items off the menu which our party gladly ordered. The food was delicious. 4 of our diners had margaritas (and they said they were delicious)

Thank pdeveny
