Service was awesome, food was even better! The waitress even gave us a special treat since it was our first time. My husband and I finally found a Mexican restaurant that is amazing since moving to the area. This place is a must try, you will not regret it. The steak fajitas were awesome & the house margs were on... More

Always excellent food hot (temperature) and not too spicy. Fun dining too. There are good reasons for the line of people waiting for dinner. Worth waiting for.

Great service, food is above average with a good variety. More in line with authentic Mexican than many of the Tex Mex places. Chicken tortilla soup was good. I had several different tacos and they were excellent .

Food is really good. The only negative is that when they celebrate birthdays the staff all gathers to sing. They parade through the restaurant and clap, some as loud as they can, until they reach the table, then they clap and sing. For people with migraines, this extremely loud clapping can be a trigger. It is very noisy in the... More

Great food, friendly staff, some wait but it's always worth it, especially if you can get a seat at the bar with a house margarita and large guacamole. They make it in front of you, so you can pick your ingredients. Still a five star but two small comments la parilla - teach your staff to blend the avocado thoroughly... More

We had to wait a few minutes to be seated, but not too long. The place was very busy. For dinner my wife had the shrimp quesadillas and I had the shrimp fajitas. We both felt this was the best Mexican food we have ever eaten. The service was also excellent.

Numerous times I have found this place to be of great quality but tonight in calling for carry out, they are lucky they did not get it back. Higher prices, less salsa, plenty of chips but main items ordered were cold, small and old . Going to take a serious look at a trend that might be developing at this... More

The food was great. The wait isn't too bad and there's some seating for parties who have to wait. The wait staff are attentive. Our drinks never emptied. Our chips and salsa never ran out.

Thank Richard S
