I think overall this restaurant is pretty good. However, at times the service can be on the slower end. The food is good and the salsa is fresh. Chips are always fresh too. I would give it a higher rating, but I am not a fan of their bar - I don' t like their margaritas, they seem really sweet... More

We came here at the recommendation of others and the best I could say was that it was okay. The service was slower than others in the area and the food was average. Decent prices though, which probably appeals to a lot of people.

Not bad but not the best mexican I've had either... wouldn't make a special trip to go here especially when there's another mexican place in town that's 100 times better.

Great staff, fast service and good Mexican food. Try the Queso Fundido or the Shrimp Fiesta. Also, the wine is super cheap, boxed wine but it is priced very well!

The only reason this review is not a single star is that the jumbo margarita that I had with dinner was very good. On the menu the Chimichanga is flagged with the Aztec Sun icon that is supposed to mean: "My Family Favorite Recipe". When my plate arrived I immediately noticed that the tortillas were NOT deep-fried but since it... More

Our lunch on July 21 was just awful. The chili relleno was so undercooked that the batter was still raw and the chili itself was soggy. Not sure what the meat was in our tacos, but it sure was not shredded beef. The salsa was without even a hit of freshness.

This restaurant has a very large menue. Multiple size and flavor margaritas. Service is good and prompt. Chips and salsa provided while waiting for your order. It is a little pricey but worthwhile.

I cannot even begin to express how disgusting the food is at this particular restaurant. We had 16 people in our party and of those 16 people, there was only 1 that said their meal was "ok". Everyone else agreed it was just gross. The best thing to have here is the margaritas. They are good, huge, and well priced.... More

I've eaten here quite a few times and the food is wonderful. There's never been a wait to get a seat when I've been there and the staff are friendly and fast. I've had several different entrees and everything I've sampled has been wonderful. The chips and salsa are also REALLY good and the prices are REALLY cheap!

My boyfriend and 15 year old daughter stopped in for a Saturday lunch and it was great. Friendly service, clean, and reasonably priced. If we are back in the area we would definitely try again !!!
