Had the bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp and it was one of the best meals I've had at a Mexican restaurant in a while. I highly recommend this dish!

Food was good but the water had a funny taste to it. Service was pretty good. Stopped in from Florida going home.

We just relocated to Richmond Hill. We knew we were going to miss our favorite Mexican from home. The service here is great. The food has a good flavor and the margaritas are pretty good, too.

Faster than fast food, and better than the average mexican restaurant. We will be back again for another lunch, or perhaps dinner.

I'm sorry but we do not live in the area. We visit Richmond Hill 4-5 times a year to visit our daughter. We have eaten there very often and the buffet is open every time we go. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
