I have been to this restaurant twice now for a company function and both times the food was very bland, very poor food quality. The cheese sauce on my fajita burrito was like sauce you pour out of a jar. If you want good mexican skip this poor excuse for it. Very expensive also.

Visited around 8 pm on a Saturday night with a friend. While the menu reads well and yummy, the food was mediocre especially for the price. Staff were more interested in their conversation than providing timely service. The 2 soups are no soup and came lukewarm. Would not recommend or return

Together some colleagues I took dinner in this restaurant. Very good the location with different possibilities in terms of tables. We started with margarita and nachos. After that, we tasted different plates. I tasted a burrito based on steak, with beans and rice. Everything was good. Very appreciated the service and the space among the tables. We spent a very...

My husband & I visited here for the first time. Chips average, but good mild salsa. Queso very bland but my husband said Guacamole was Excellent! We both had Margaritas-original & they were Fantastic:) We both ordered combo plates. The enchiladas were wonderful. Our waitresses were attentive.

Have been here many times. Great food and drink. Always order the Chicken Nachos and split it with my wife. Recommend stoping here if you're at Polaris!

First time here. I wanted Mexican, but somewhere different. Food was very good, except queso and guacamole very bland. Margaritas mostly watery and flavorless. Best is the Cinco Rita (highly recommend). Service attentive and friendly. Lots of room around tables. Nice decor. I will go back.

I have never had a bad meal here and this time was no exception. The chips and salsa are both good, too. Our server this visit, Patrick, was above average. He got our order right even when the kitchen did not. No wait on a Saturday night was nice. They do take reservations as well so that's a plus.

We had a family of six. We had about a twenty minute wait but not too bad for a Saturday night during summer. We didn't have a reservation. The dinner was very good and everyone seemed pleased. It is a bit expensive.

We got here one day by default, the accident of being in the right place at the right time and not wanting cheesecake factory or benihanas... I'd avoided it because the menu online looked limited, but I have to say that does not mean anything any more... if they make a GREAT enchilada & a superb taco, and we WANT... More

We thought the food was much, much better than most Mexican restaurants here in Columbus. I had the portobello fajitas which were excellent! Tons of veggies and flavor served with very tasty beans and guacamole, pico, and the unfortunate obligatory pile of seasoned rice. He had a combination platter and the steak was excellent and seasoned well. We had the... More
