Had a #10 combination . Food was hot and taste good. Sweet tea was good. Staff friendly and fast to greet u. Got there at 6pm and place was pack . Only waited about 15 min for food. Price for 3 combination plate and 3 drinks was 36.00. Not bad for the amount of food.

Great service, friendly staff. Asked for 'authentic' Mexican and was guided to some great street tacos that were delicious. The first selection they suggested had seafood in a cream sauce. Not being familiar with this particular dish, I inquired if there was any place in Mexico that would serve it. Our server discreetly admitted no, and steered me in a... More

We were welcomed and taken to our table and instantly we had home made chips and salsa. The menu is huge and full of authentic dishes which was quite unbelievable to see. Meals can quickly and reminded me of some of the off the road restaurants I have eaten at in Mexico. I wish we had one of these restaurants... More

My hotel recommended this as a local favorite as I'm not a fan of chains. When I arrived I was the only person there and was a bit concerned, but it very quickly filled to capacity. I wound up being originally served by the manager who then transitioned my service to a waiter. Both were friendly and kindly checked in... More

Food is good.... Sometimes they can be stingy on the portions... It's plenty of food, but sometimes the value for what you pay isn't great. We still go there plenty. Love there chips and salsa!

Stopped in for lunch just after 12 noon on a Saturday. Promptly seated, and waiter was there immediately for drink order. Order was promptly taken and food delivered in a reasonable time frame. The food was delicious. Both the wife and I had combination plates. Only possible shortcoming was the waiter not providing additional napkins, but the service was very... More

Been here a few times and have never been disappointed. Food is consistently good and it's people from Mexico waiting on you and making your food, just what you want in a Mexican restaurant. Only negative is the service can be slow at times, otherwise a great place to eat.

Although wait staff were not as attentive as we could have hoped, the food was very good. Endless array of menu options, some that you won't see other places, kept us busy trying to decide. Food came piping hot and the complimentary appetizer of chips and salsa was good. My "Colorado chicken" menu item had a chili pepper symbol next... More

Having lived several years in San Antonio, (Texas) my taste are a little outside the upper Midwestern norm. I found the food quite delicious (predictably not as spicy as Texan fare) and the wait staff attentive.

Service was ok but food was there quickly, was very tasty and the Negro Modelo was cold. Don't bother with the margaritas. Would definitely go back again!
