The chips and salsa are the best.. light and thin chips with terrific salsa and a delicious ranch dip, too. The entrees are delicious and the service is top notch. Our meals were delivered to us before we were even done with the chips and salsa and they were hot! We like the enchiladas, refried beans, rice, and the steak... More

Our Waitress was apologetic but our food took an hour to come out. Food is good but be ready to wait cooks are slow. Plus our waitress told the manager we had waited a long time but the manager didn't come over and apologize or discount our bill. So I doubt we will rush to go back there

I love the habanero bowl. Chicken salad and taco salad are also very good. My kids prefer the tacos and enchiladas.

I have been here several times this year. I really enjoy the food. I especially like the chips that are served at the start. They are light and crisp with a great flavor. Friendly service.

I'm going to this give this a 3 star only because the food carries this place. Our waitress was so so. Had to get our own silverware from an empty table and still waiting on my lemons. No biggie but add in the cashier and my review takes a nose dive and fast! Her attitude stinks! That girl needs to... More

So we had four hungry adults.....two orders correct, one missing the shrimp and one undercooked. Even after bringing to her attention that the fajitas did not include the shrimp.....her response was oh, would you want me to get you some? Seriously? Well if it's not too much trouble....still didn't get the hint. If this is the best you have in... More

Was visiting in the area and was hungry for Mexican food so we took a chance and stopped in. It did not disappoint. The restaurant was spacious and clean. We enjoyed the chips and salsa. Service was good. Food was tasty and hot. Would eat there again.

This is not a typical Mexican restaurant, it's more tex Mex. The restaurant is very clean, including the bathrooms. The food is good, hot and fresh. The service was amazing. The prices are low. I love the environment and how large the place was. Will Definetly be back!

Been there several times. Asked for a small bowl of extra cheese. Got it, but it was $4.50 on my bill and I thought the waitress should have mentioned the extra charge. I thought $4.50 was excessive. When I mentioned the aforementioned to the cashier she said "well you ate it, didn't you?" I thought that was rude and will... More
