I was expecting my salad to taste like a taco salad, regardless of whether I had beef or chicken. It had absolutely no taco seasoning, too much chicken, and very little of the other ingredients. And the warm chips/salsa is better at Chili's.

Worst Mexican food I've ever had. NO taste and mine was barely warm. Never again. Food was as far from fresh as it could have been.

food was awful, lacked taste and presentation. I don't understand how people think this place is good Mexican food.

Never Again, over the last year this place has gone downhill.Portions are SO much smaller and now for the most unbelievable...I ordered Brouchetas, it is supposed to be steak ( and chicken if you want) tomatoes, pineapple,mushrooms, bacon, ham and green peppers. What I got was a few pieces of beef, 2 pieces of pineapple, some mushroom slices and........................CUT UP... More

Your typical locally owned Mexican cuisine, it was exactly what we were looking for. Overall same menu as most similar Mexican Restaurants. Food was fresh and tasty. I would say the margarita and salsa were above average.

This is one of the best Mexican restaurants in the Leesburg area. The Chimichanga is excellent. Good service and also beer and wine.

The best part of our dining experience was leaving. The beef in our meal tasted off somehow. The only redeeming event was that the owner/Manager recognized we were dissatisfied due to the largely uneaten meals on the table and comp'd one of the meals. We will never return.

Happy hour till 7 all week. Food is pretty good for the prices, and the service was good enough. $115 for 4 adults and 2 kids drinks included. We were happy with what we got for that.

Thank OSUrob
