Five adults all had mains and drinks. With tip included it was still under $100. Huge portions and fast and friendly service. This is a must go to place to meet family whenever we are in El Paso

Pretty steady Mexican food. Good, tasty and good portions. Similar location on the east side. Good attentive staff. Chips and salsa were a great way to start off the evening. Food delivered in a timely manner.

This is a new location (same area of town) and it's always good but certainly not over the top. We had sirloin tacos, enchiladas & chili rellenos. It was hot and definitely tasty but the service is slow and the waiter forgot to put our...More

Used to go here all the time and loved it. Now They've gotten sloppy and greedy. The carnitas are stll good but now you will take a risk ordering other items- very inconsistent. When ordering enchiladas beware the tortillas are three times as thick as...More
