This has to be the blandest Mexican food I have ever tasted. I had steak fajita. I got a steak that was prepared well but unseasoned. Just plain steak on unseasoned pepper and onions. The refried beans and rice were also uneventful. None of the...food was bad but it tasted nothing like Mexican. I will say the chips were good but the salsa was a disappointment. I asked the waiter for hot sauce to try to salvage the meal but he never brought it.More

If I could give it ZERO stars I would. Refused to fix my steak fajitas after I called three times and got the ‘OK’ that they’d fix it. Talked to the manager Hermando or whatever and he argued me down about a $10 meal. I...always ordered from here , I’ll NEVER in my life eat here again!! Horrible customer service.More

This is one of my fav. Mexican restaurants food wise. The chips were light and thin, salsa was tasty I had the chicken covered in Chorizo with beans and rice. All were very flavorful. The strawberry Margarita really hit the spot. The vegetarian fajitas were...ordered by my friend. Full of real vegetables, not just onions and peppers. Waitress was friendly and attentive. One of the tastiest Mexican restaurants I have been too.More

We were visiting my son and daughter in law. They live close by this restaurant so decided to have a late Sunday afternoon lunch. Our server was Israel and he was fantastic. He was very attentive to everything even pouring our drinks from the pitcher...of margaritas we ordered. We had a party of 5 and everyone said their food was very good. The margaritas were great. It was a very pleasant experience and we will definitely come back often when on that side of town.More

Staying overnight in the area we found this restaurant in a nearby strip mall. My initial impression was not good as we sat down to an old tattered menu. Our server was so friendly and welcoming. I ordered the spinach quesadilla which came with rice...and it was delish (and big)! A 27 oz. draft of Dos Equis Amber was $6.50. Nice place to unwind with good food and friendly staff.More

We stopped their last week, we usually go to the Jiles Rd location. The atmosphere was great, staff was very friendly and helpful. If you don’t mind spicy food it would be great. I have an issue with spice so was unable to eat the...food. Still had a good time.More

You get a lot of chips in the bag. They are the fragile kind that break easily. So you may have a lot of little chips as well as full-size. Plenty of salsa in the to-go container. Steady stream of customers for Thursday's lunch. I...got my taco salad to-go, so I got a birds-eye view of the traffic thru the door. Bar was open and some customers were there. Almost got me thirsty, but... The salad is very heavy in weight. Maybe it was all those beans I got. The full container sat on my kitchen counter for like 3 hours. I considered a toaster oven to reheat, but the bottom of the clam shell was pretty soggy. All that lovely juice. So I threw the entire styrofoam package in the micro for 30 seconds. And know what? The salad came out just fine. That's the thing about salads. They have a wide range of acceptable eating temperature. Got my Taco Salad with beans instead of beef or chicken. Just for a change of pace. Prices are average. I'll have to bring my spouse here. 3 and a half stars.More

Many Mexican restaurants are almost exactly the same. This one, though, has food that seems more flavorful that regular Mexican fare. Really enjoyed the steak fajita quesadilla. The meat was moist and delicious. Large jumbo margarita specials for only $6.99.
