Restaurant details
Reviewed 31 August 2015

We had a group of 8 for 2 birthday dinners with 2 children and 6 adults. There was something for everyone on this huge menu with many more choices than the normal Mexican restaurant. I love the way they divided the menu into different sections so you could go right to what type of food interests you. 2 baskets of homemade tortilla chips and salsa came and refills of chips were no problem. We ordered a couple of white cheese dip for the chips also and it was delicious! I ordered the Chimichanga Del Mar and it was such a huge portion, I could not eat but half of it and it was delicious and filled with shrimp, scallops, and crab. Among the eight, there was not one complaint and everyone had to get a to go box. The kids ordered off the adult menu even though there was a wide range of kids meals. We used a 15% coupon courtesy of a Kroger receipt and our bill (even with a pitcher of Margaritas) was only 96.00 so this restaurant is not only has great food, but it has very reasonable prices. We will definitely go back!

I like certain foods but really like the chips/sauce. I like theCheap prices at lunch. I dislike the atmosphere.

We stopped here on our way to North Carolina in March, and again in May on our way to Florida. It's tucked away in a strip mall, so we had fun doing a little shopping after we ate! Our food was very good, chips and salsa good & also the service. Margaritas are excellent! The restaurant seats a lot of people and it can get a little noisy, but that only adds to the atmosphere. Will probably be back on our way to Florida next year!

The restaurant was busy but still had a good amount of tables open. We had a party of 6, so not to huge to manage. Once seated it took a little time for the server to actually come to us and take our drink orders, and equally the same long time to get our drink orders. Starting to see a pattern. The waiter was horrible and in consistent. Food took forever to come out to us, which is very, very odd for a mexican restaurant. We ordered some queso, which we are guessing he forgot about because when he did bring it out he was laughing at how he forgot about it. Our Dinner plates came out in phases, 2 at a time after a long wait, even the time between plates was a few minutes. Now the Food was very tasty, we just lucked out on the waiter either having a bad day or just not that good.

it is easy to overlook this excellent restaurant in a strip mall but the servers are great as is the food. It is very large once you are inside you will be amazed.
