The Mexican food here is good, but very typical of what Midwesterners think is Mexican food. I wish it was more authentic and spicier.

It was crowded. Chips and salsa - 2 for 1 Rita's that were good. Food was excellent, warm with good portions. Waiter was boring and had no personality. Waited for payment when he dropped check off. I would return, but get a different server!
