I had read bad reviews on this place, but decided to see for myself. I noticed that they were the most expensive Mexican restaurant in town(at least of the four I've tried).

Love the salsa and chips. The chips are thin and the salsa was just the right temp and thickness. Mexican food is ok. So items are better than others, however the steaks are really good. They are good tasting, tender and cooked right. Staff all seemed very friendly.

The food is average fair Mexican food. The people are nice, otherwise I would give it a poor rating because the cleanliness is questionable.

Service could be better. The chips and salsa are very good. Sometimes you have to wait a while for your food. I will continue to go there.

I love the food here and the service is usually very good. Sometimes you might have a newer server that is not up to par but the taste and the price makes it worth it.
