We were seated quickly, but it took over 10 minutes before a server came by to see if we'd been helped. Our food took another 30 to 45 minutes to come out and when it did it was COLD! This was my first visit and it will also be my last. I cannot comment as to how the food tasted... More

We went there because we love Mexican and this place did not disappoint. You get unlimited chips and salsa while waiting for order to come. I had a skinny margarita which was good, and strong. I highly recommend the chicken taco salad. It was awesome and fun as well because, instead of coming in,the typical bowl shaped shell, it was... More

If you travel to Lubbock on Sunday trying to find food at 2pm is difficult if you are avoiding fast food. This place has several grilled options and patio area. It is by campus so it's a safe area with college crowd.

Our waiter was extremely nice and did a wonderful job, however my meal and margarita was very disappointing. While I appreciate the wonderful service I would not recommend this restaurant.

Went the the night before the TCU-Tech game. Ate at the outside bar. Food was fine, Queso a little thin. Limited beer selection. Nice place to hang out.

The server informed us they were out of beans- that wasn't the worst of it. Table of six that walked in long after us Was served first. 45 minutes for party of 3 and ordered off the lunch menu. They weren't even that busy. Never again

Early Saturday morning breakfast with a Mexican Skillet filled with eggs, potatoes, bean and Mexican sausage. Tortilla chips with spicy topping. Coffee not so good. Excellent waitstaff. The total bill for two for breakfast was $13.00.

I'm a food snob when it comes to tex-mex or Mexican food. Don't let the appearance fool you--this place has authentic tasting tex-mex at decent prices. It's a little higher priced than the tiny Mexican food places, but you get very large portions, in a clean environment. Very, very good food.

Sorry but the service is really poor and the food doesn't make up for it. It wasn't the staff's fault though, everyone were working really hard and were very friendly. It must have been a management problem. Anyway I'm not coming back.

Thank Jessib
