We both had a chicken taco, a beef taco, rice and beans. Everything tasted horrible. We had to leave the restaurant after just one bite of each item. Also, my fork was dirty. I noticed another review about this so it must be a persistent problem. The staff was great about it. Excellent service. I would not pay any amount... More

The restaurant is well maintained and clean. The staff is professional and friendly. The service was very good. The food was okay. I've had much better Mexican Style food at other restaurants. Not a bad place, just not memorable and no "wow" factor.

The chips, guacamole and salsa are all made fresh. Had the fajitas (steak & shrimp). Pretty tasty. I liken this to Chilis.

My boyfriend and I did a double date there and the food was excellent. They offer crayons for kids to color on the wall with, so naturally I had to join in on that fun as well. Our waitress was distracted towards the end and it took 10 min for us to get another waiter's attention to get a to... More

Seeing all of the cars in the parking lot every time we drove by, we thought this was a place to try....however, now I believe that it must be the workers' cars parked there to make it appear as a great, popular place. Boy, were we wrong. The chips and salsa were fine and that is all we should have... More

We had a nice Mexican dinner with margaritas and fun. This Restraunts is very good with great authentic food. Their salsa and chips are the best. The chicken fajitas is plenty of food and good. In all we enjoyed this visit.

Last week we were running errands in Kennesaw at dinner time. Although my husband had been to this restaurant the month prior and had a terrible experience, it was one of the few places in Kennesaw where I could get a vegan dinner. The server walked by my husband's empty beer glass multiple times before asking if he wanted another... More

We enjoyed our meal. It was served hot, and tasted good. The service was friendly but a little slow. We did not really mind because we were talking. The server accidently added a border brownie to our ticket. She took care of it after we flagged her down. Overall good experience.
