While the drinks are generous and well priced, food is not enticing. They do not make their tortillas in house and the pollo al mole tasted disgraceful. Avoid, unless you are a college student.

Best chips and salsa in town. Food is fresh and hot and always good. Never disappointed. Burritos, quesadillas, and enchiladas are my go to items. Margaritas are delish!

We were invited here by friends. Busy place! Normal Mexican ambiance. I was impressed by the very reasonable lunch prices. I ordered a chimichanga with ground beef. The others varied items. My chimichanga was very average. Did not have any special flair.

I've tried this restaurant on several occasions and it's "just okay" to me. Nothing jumps out. The food is average, the drinks use to be very good, but now, just okay. Service is good, prices are okay.

We were just driving through Tallahassee on a Sunday and happened to see how many cars there were in the parking lot. We had the fish tacos which were delicious, and Margaritas, which were wonderful. Very nice staff.

Why eat at a fast food place when you can get better food at just about the same price for lunch? They have decent service, atmosphere and food for the price.

Not sure Kayla. I've only been there for food. Didn't pay attention to Happy Hour. Have to give them a call.
