We ordered stacked nachos as an appetizer but they were huge almost like two full meals. So we adjusted our plan and only ordered 1 entree...The superior dinner...Also huge and we took home a full meal from the leftovers. There is a flavor(I believe it was cumin) that permeated most of the food that I didn't care for. The sour... More

Every time I go, I say it will be the last time, but I give them another shot after a year or so. I received an email about $5 combos, so I decided to invite a friend and head to the border. We ordered margaritas, which were good...then ordered our food. We ordered kids meals for the kids and my... More

The service here is absolutely awful. I was not brought a fork until my husband finished his dinner. Had to track down another waitress just so she could tell ours. I will never return.

Ask for Kelsley and you will have a great meal. Fish tacos great. Have Kelsley get you a house on rocks with a shot.

I have to assume our server was new. Brought a lemon out for my friend's water with his hands - not even on a plate! Two orders of food were wrong. Couldn't keep our drinks refilled in a timely manner. The food was not good. The chips smelled like old oil, the food was hardly warm, and it didn't matter... More

After having a great tasting meal we checked our bill to find an error. We ordered a larger beer with a small up charge. We were told by the waiter that the added beer would be $1.59 more. This is what the waiter was trained to say. The bill had an added charge of $2.59. Surprise! When we complained, the... More

You can't go wrong with such a place. Friendly environment and service, great selection of food and good margaritas. It gets busy at times but they have a high turn-around time.

I'm a big margarita lover and visit a lot of mexican restaurants just for that reason. This place has the best margaritas I've had in a long, long while! Their chips and salsa is wonderful, too! They're light, crispy and fresh. The food is awesome! Not greasy like most mexican places.
