Unlike many Mexican restaurants, this place is well lit and music is not blaring. Wonderful if you actually want to talk to the people you are with. Food is also good and menu has many choices.

This is one of our go-to places for a reasonable quick meal. We eat here about once a month and really like the food. The wait staff is friendly and funny. Try the rolled quesadillas.

Really didn't have to venture out much since the Baymont Inn provided hot meals twice a day. The Baymont was located close enough to walk to convenience store, fast food places .

Good quality food & better at meeting accommodations for customer service requests than other Mexican restaurants. They meet my standards for special request orders.

This is authentic Mexican food in a quiet environment. They have fast and efficient service. The blended lime margaritas are my favorite beverage and the jumbos are a great buy!
