They have a basic Tex-Mex menu and are a bit hit or miss on quality & flavor. We ordered grilled shrimp Diablo and it was so spicy it was inedible. The menu does say spicy but this was more than spicy. The heat of the...More

we came here and the rice was white and bland and the queso was tasteless. I had beef nachos and the meat was unusually a lighter tone and tasteless. The service was slow.

We all got the Stevie’s Special, a really nice chicken dish with cheese and rice. We are a late dinner. Not much of a crowd. Margaritas were nice. Moderate price. It was just off the interstate On MLK Drive.
