went here for the first time last weekend. Chips and salsa were good. We ordered queso to go with it and it was on the runny side. Good flavor but seemed watered down. I ordered cheese enchiladas which just tasted like rubber. Hardly any flavor. Also seemed a bit pricey for what we ordered. Probably would not go back.

I used to go here quite a bit when they opened 10+ years ago. It has gone downhill since then. The food (all you can eat enchiladas) was subpar and it took a long time to get our food, regardless of the fact that half the restaurant was empty. Our server was painful. We had to ask for things repeatedly... More

... and too salty. Pluses - nice server, $2 draft Coors Light special, salsa with chips very fresh and spicy, and short turn around after order. Food itself, as I said.

Our favorite Mexican restaurant. Great service. Drink specials through the week are really good deals. We go there at least once a week.

Do NOT waste your money here, go to Taco Bell! Service was absolutely terrible, I have had microwave chicken that was better than my Fajita that was supposed to be fresh. My soft tortilla shells smelled bad, and the rice was dry. My husband ordered the endless enchilada special, and was made to wait between refills of the enchiladas. The... More

I go here because this is decent Tex Mex and because they have the Chicken Flautas that I like.. Well they have done away with the Chicken Flautas so now I had to find something else to like.. The tacos are pretty good and the fajitas are always a sure bet.. Be sure and get the white queso it is... More

The chips are Salty and the Salsa is a bit spicy but both are free so no complaints there. Our dinners were good, the service was fine also. I prefer this as a healthier alternative to the typical Mexican stops that are very greasy. We wouldnt hesitate to go back.

The positive is the outdoor seating! Service and food are ok and prices are a little high for what you get. Disappointed in the kids menu selections and lack of al a crate items.

First time to this restaurant. As were walked towards the front door we noticed the litter that surrounded the landscape beds and sidewalk. We we seated immediately but our server took several minutes to appear. The menu has typical Mexican selections. We received tortilla chips and salsa prior to ordering. Salsa was chunky and had a small heat taste to... More

Met a friend here, for a late Friday lunch. Her location choice. It was our first time dining here. Christian was our server. The service was above average, as was the food. The menu prices seemed fair, for what you get. The facility is current, and well-maintained. Restrooms were both clean. All things considered, we had a nice dining experience,... More
