Local, home town feel with consistently excellent quality. If you enjoy good Mexican food and margaritas with friendly and helpful wait staff this is your place. Rarely a wait because they serve fast and make your experience a pleasure.

Well earned top ranking in Grapevine. We really enjoyed it from the fresh chips and salsa to the fajitas and shrimp tacos. We will be back often.

I love this place every time I go I only order the desperado tacos. The staff is very friendly the place is been there forever and the restaurant is clean. It’s a little bit overpriced but the food is worth it.
