Stopped here for dinner. Very festive upon entering with the bright, vivid colors! You forget that you are in a strip mall. The staff was courteous and service was quick. I enjoyed the chicken fajitas and hubby enjoyed the fish tacos. The menu had quite the offering. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

I had some amazing food and even had better service. The food was served fast and hot. It was nice to have homemade salsa to start off. I had the chicken enchiladas.

Best margaritas hands down. Frozen ones especially. Oh, and the food is great too. Very friendly staff.

The price is great! You get a lot of food for little money. Good place for large or small group. Our group liked the salsa and chips. No complaints from our group of 8. The service was good and the place was clean.

This is an average to good Mexican restaurant with a broad menu and pretty average food. My carne assada was way over cooked. Chips and salsa were good, warm and never ending. The best thing about the place was the service which was excellent. A good value but just average food.

A great place for a meal with a group large or small. The food is quickly prepared, fresh, affordable and the staff make you feel like family! I love any of their chicken dishes and the portions are huge. The guacamole is very good and perfectly mixed. The margaritas are not too strong and come in a range of sizes.... More

Great food, great customer service. They moved to Greenwood Indiana and this were we ate at. The Greenwood location was not listed yet. They have outdoor setting, which was really nice. Prices are bad either

Under new management. Good food. Service was a little slow. I expect the chips to be replaced without asking. Just the little details that make a good Mexican restaurant. Prices were very good.
