If we want Mexican food this is the place we want to go. The place is busy but they get you in and out quick. Never had anything I didn't like. The staff is amazing you chips and salsa never run out and your class is always full. Wish there was one in my town.

Went there on a Sunday 20 minutes after they opened and the place was hopping! I had the Chile Relleno lunch special and it got there in about 5 minutes. It wasn't very spicy, but very good flavor. Everything was delicious. I'll go back for sure!

We found this local gem on a lunch break for a conference we were attending in Norman. The food and the service were amazing!! We did have a wait but once we got in they immediately brought warm tortillas, cheese dip, chips and salsa to our table. Our waiter was friendly and efficient even with as busy as they were... More

We visited here on a Tuesday night with friends from out of town. We've been coming here for many years, but mostly on a Saturday or Sunday night. This week night visit was especially good. We were seated right away. The service was very fast. Our drink order was taken right away, followed closely by the delivery of the table... More

Service and food are ALWAYS outstanding! Best margaritas in Norman. Never a long wait for a table or food. Literally in and out if you are on a time crunch.

My husband and I tried this place because we heard it was good. I wasn't very thrilled personally. We never knew who our server was because everything was brought by a different person and his drink went empty while eating which is his biggest pet peeve. Even when they are not busy it seems that they are just trying to... More

The food here is well prepared and tasty, but what really sets this place apart from most restaurants is the EXCELLENT service. Quite frankly, it is the best service I have ever received in ANY restaurant anywhere.

Have been going here since they opened. Voted #1 in Norman several years in a row. Often a short wait for a table. Food is excellent. Love the avacado enchiladas. Salad selection good too. Service fast and friendly
