We love authentic Mexican food and this place has it. It is located in a strip mall towards the end of McKnight Road. If you don't know it is there, you can miss it. There is always parking available. We have eaten here more than a dozen times over the years and I felt it was time to write a... More

Nice place to have dinner, not at all crammed. Very good food and service. The staff is good too. Even my little kids gave 5 stars, it is very hard to convince them. Within 40 minutes, we r out of the restaurant.

Went here with my family on a Tuesday evening. It was crowded, but not so much that there were people waiting for a table. It took at least 40 minutes to get our dinners. Even then, they weren't all brought out at the same time, had to wait an additional 6-7 minutes for one meal. Hard to flag down our... More

Always excellent Mexican cuisine. Wide choices of great options with very reasonable prices. Beef, chicken and seafood plus decent vegetarian options. Great value combo meals. Everything I've had is always wonderful. Good bar selection. Draft beers, tequila and really solid margaritas. Nifty Mex decor and atmosphere with plenty of seating. Service is friendly and super fast. Great place for a... More

Great food, great service! Would recommend this place to anyone! We sat out in the dining area by the open windows which I really liked as I found the inside area a little too dark. Food was great! Portions great and prices reasonable!

We usually visit the Robinson location for this restaurant and never had a bad meal. I can't say the same for our first visit to this location. The restaurant was not busy, but service was slow. It took so long to get our drinks that they gave them to us. I ordered three carne asada tacos on corn tortillas. I... More

This is the most authentic Mexican Restaurant I have ever eaten in. The decor is very Mexican, the staff is all Mexican, and the food is delicious.

Stopped in for Dinner. Sat at the bar. Service was good but could have been a little better. Had to ask a couple of time for the same thing. I was never offered a refill and had to wait a while to cash out. Food came out quickly and was hot. I thought it was average Mexican food. it was... More

My son suggested this place for a late lunch early dinner; there was no crowd to speak of so seating and service was prompt. The Super Quessadila was good. The rice was dry and a third of the plate was covered in chopped lettuce with a dollop of guacamole. The entry itself was hot and flavorful but the steak knife... More

I had the Fajita combination (chicken, beef, shrimp). It was served with the usual fare of beans & rice, along with guacamole salad and soft tortilla shells. The chips and salsa was quite good. Service was very good and prompt
