The food was mediocre, average at best. For the price, I expected better. Service was ok, our waitress was not very friendly, but was at least competent. Would not return, and cannot recommend. Too expensive for the quality of food.

One of our favorites, great food, incredible staff. Love the endless enchiladea nights, and both the Taco salad and Fajita salad are fantastic. Our son loves the grilled fish tacos.

Nothing authentic about this Mexican restaurant, but the food is edible. The burritos are very large and sharable. Chips and salsa are okay, but not great. Friendly service, but a bit slow.

Got the Border Sampler with a $5 off digital coupon. It was great! Friendly service at a really good price, chips & salsa. What's not to love!

My 1st visit. Nice menu. Many choices. I had a chicken on a green salad. Very tasty but I though they skimpy on the chicken. Great friendly service.
