Went for lunch. The place is very colorful and the staff I always friendly. We sat at a table for two in the bar section. Served warm Tostito chip and salsa for free and free refills. Ordered a shrimp appetizer that was excellent and beef taco. Very good.

Makes you feel so young. The setting is colourful and has chairs in all colors. The food is purely and authentic Mexican. Service is good. Folks serving around chat with you making you feel at home.

Great Mexican restaurant sandwiched along the same street with a Krispy Kreme, Sheetz and a sports bar. Fun decor and plenty of space for families. We had a party of 7 and tried nearly the whole menu. All good.

We went for dinner, and ordered two different chicken dishes - a simple chicken burrito and a chimichanga. Both tasted like it was canned chicken. Really watery and gross. We barely could finish a few bites. The margaritas were obviously just made with a mix, and were really sweet. Really disappointing.

The menu is a little overwhelming. The bartender made some great suggestions and knew the menu items. Fresh food and a fun atmosphere. Specialty drinks are fun. Lots of parking..easy in and out. They have a few patio tables in the summer. Located on a busy road. Staff always greets you walking in and out. Bayhrooms are so clean. Nice... More

I always judge a Mexican restaurant on two things, a Chile Relleno, and their tomatillo sauce. The chile rellano was very unique instead of being bartered and fried it was stuffed with mashed potatoes. While I appreciated the unique take, it was just ok... maybe it would grow on you after you eat it a few times. The tomatillo sauce... More

The restaurant offers interesting choices. The tortilla chips were fresh and obviously home made and were served with an excellent salsa.. I enjoyed the Puntas Albanil, slices of broiled chicken,, jalapenos, mushrooms and onion with a melted cheese sauce. The plate included the usual refried beans and rice and a thick, creamy guacamole. It was delicious and too much for... More
