THIS RESTAURANT IS NOW CLOSED. I believe it closed December 2014. It was not my favorite mexican restaurant by far and I am hoping a nice fine dining restaurant goes in to that place...town center could use another nice restaurant.

This is my go-to place for a Tex Mex style Mexican food fix. The food is dependably good, the atmosphere that of a rustic Cantina. We ordered Mix and match Fajitas with Shrimp/Beef, Ranchiladas, and Chile con Queso. Everything was delicious.

Food is not very good. Service is always awful. Have been three times and service has always been awful. Waiting 10 minutes for a person to seat us when it is slow was annoying. Waiting 15 minutes for our order to be taken. 20 minutes...More

Strongly suggest coming here for the Taco Thursday deal. You get half price on the "deluxe" tacos which are very good. Most of the food isn't anything special to write home about and the prices for these deluxe tacos are a bit on the extreme...More
