We love mexican food and decided to stop. It was good with a lot of food. The atmosphere fit the theme. And the music too. I must say I was a little disappointed in the margarita. I ordered it blended but it was very crunchy...More

No vegetarian items listed, but the server was accommodating about adding beans to a dish. The food was okay, but I've had much better Mexican. The Margarita was good.

We stopped in for lunch. Friendly staff and quick service. We thought the prices were a little high for a small lunch portion. I ordered fajitas and my husband orders a chimi. His was very small, he ate part of mine. : ) Decent chips...More

The food and service was great. Nice place to eat and prices are good. Free chips and salsa. Drinks are priced well also.

In a way more of a tex-mex feel to the restaurant. Good overall food, with huge portion sizes.... they did tweak the menu a bit for northern Minnesota tastes. I highly suggest their lunch specials - they come out extremely fast, well priced and taste...More

I came to meet some clients for a business lunch and was rudely told by a dark haired man who said he owned the business to get out of my way I need to get through with food. I left.

The atmosphere is your typical Mexican decor. The food was average but the service was very good. They also have good margaritas.
