This is a step up from the local Mexican style restaurants. Their quality of food is very good, the wait staff are always polite and accommodating. Food is delivered hot and tasty.

Quality Mexican cuisine. It's a chain, but the food is consistently on point. I enjoy the steak and shrimp fajitas.

$37 for 2 sodas, 3 dip appetizer, nachos & a burrito. The burrito came out wrong and had to be taken back to the kitchen. This food is not that good to be so expensive. Not going back.
