OMG was this food good ! Authentic Mexican food, served by Mexican waiters, LOTS of food to choose from, and the portions are huge ! We love the way they bring out the salsa in bottles, is is pureed, not chunky, yet has a small bite to it. Cheap and good.

The food is sometimes good, sometimes not and you have no idea which way it's going to go. They do have a huge menu, but everything tastes pretty much the same. The service is horrible. It took 15 minutes to get the attention of the server, and then I ended up at the cash register telling them what we had... More

a few months back, we went there after church, around 12 of us. Little did we know they had implemented an new 15% gratuity on parties of 8 or more. It was posted, at the counter as you pay on the way out. Quite a shock, it wasn't on their menu, only at the door. I feel that's not really... More

I eat at this restaurant every week. The entrees are always hot and fresh no matter what you order. The chips and salsa are pretty good. But just like every Mexican restaurant I've ever visited - the chips are occasionally overdone. The service is usually very good.

Two of us ordered chicken fajitas, one person got almost twice as much chicken as the other, although neither one had much, they are inconsistent with the quantity of meat, their frozen margaritas are like an Italian ice with no flavor and very little alcohol the worst I have ever had from any restaurant, the white cheese dip was watered...

Decent food, right in the heart of Harrisburg. Nothing extravagant, but helps after a whole day hiking at Shawnee and you want to eat some real food.

Tequilas is a Local Favorite of ours. When we are tired of the same Ol Same Ol, we like to hit Tequilas to spice up our taste buds, with so many selections on the menu that it wil make you head spin, My homey always leans toward the Chimichanga's, I tend to try different items, but I always like the...
