Their food is ok , but not the real Tex-Mex food.. The place looks dirty, but fair to say mostly because of their decorating. I do not know if it is really dirty or if the place is just dark [ not well lit ]. Most of the foot has too much grease; not diet food. I only go when... More

We went with a large group and they were very accommodating. The service was good and the staff was friendly. The food, however, was terrible. Most of it was tasteless. I ordered a combo plate with a taco, tostada, and enchilada. The tostada was only ground beef and nacho cheese. The taco was ground beef, a sprinkle of cheese and... More

We had a good meal and the $1.99 margarita special was great. The chicken fajitas was enough for two to share, but he had the Potosina Burrito which was also good.

I love their salsa, their guacamole, and pretty much ANYTHING on the menu. It is Mexican food, but you could order something American if needed. Have visited this establishment many many times, by myself, or in a big group. Always great service, and the food is always good, and if there is something ever wrong they always make it right....

The food was overall pretty good! My husband ordered his steak spicier than usual and they were able to accommodate his bolder request :) My kids ordered the steak with nachos and white cheese. The steak was really tender and my kids ate it all! I had the chicken enchilada. The chicken tasted like maybe it was canned or something,... More

Stopped at this "Mexican" restaurant on my way home to NWI after a short road trip. I based my decision on all the positive reviews I read on trip advisor. I ordered the combination plate and was served a plate of over salted slop. Literally the worst food I've eaten since grade school lunch. Would never recommend and would not... More

We think the food is good at both locations, but prefer the North location for atmosphere. Food is hot and fresh. Good salsa and cheese dip!
