This place feels more like a fast food cafe than a restaurant although it definitely charges restaurant prices. The food was disappointing and totally forgettable - not authentic at all. Salsa stains decorated the wall tiles inside our booth and the menus were sticky to...More

I have such a hard time finding restaurants that serve good Pollo Fundido, this one did not disappoint! The chimichanga was very crispy, with flavorful moist chicken filling, and delicious cream cheese jalapeño sauce over the top. Also loved the Sopapillas for dessert!More

Sizeable combo platters of delicious Tex Mex foods and unlimited chips and salsa make this such a great deal. The Combo Fantastico is my favourite, which comes with a mini chimichanga (beef or chicken), a big taco and crispy flautas with a side of rice...More

We like coming here when we're in town. The service is always friendly and prompt. Someone always gets the fajitas. The portion is very generous. Always need a doggie bag. I tried the sea food enchilada. I asked for a flour tortilla instead of the...More

My husband and I love Mexican food, but this place shouldn't even be aloud to call themselves that. It's the Applebee's of Mexican food - microwaved and tasteless. How does someone mess up chips in salsa? I'm not sure, but ask them because they know...More

The bartenders and wait staff were very helpful and attentive. The food was nothing special. Bland flavors can be found in dishes that normally pack a punch. I wouldn't eat here if you're looking for authentic or even tex-mex Mexican food.More
