Good Mexican food. Service was great. We were in and out in an hour/ Waiter was attentive and polite. Fajita was sizzling when it arrived to the tale.

We have gone there many times since my son goes to college near by. They have a good selection, the service is fast and mixed drinks are pretty good. Servers aren't very friendly, they aren't rude but not friendly. The food is just your average mexican food not very well seasoned, chips and salsa average. If you are looking for... More

While traveling from Wisconsin back to the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, this was a chance we took that payed off in every aspect of visiting a restaurant. Good service, good food, reasonable prices. Hope they are still there the next trip through the area.

The service is always great when we go, the food is always very good. We try to try something different, we haven't had anything yet that we didn't care for, don't really care for the rice but everything is is great.

We stopped here on our way north on I35 The staff was great. Very friendly and accommodating. Food was solidly good Mexican with several vegetarian options. I had the shrimp fajitas which I enjoyed very much. The medium margarita was truly mucho grande. We spent $50 for 3 with drinks so a good price as well

We stopped here on our way back and enjoyed our food. Staff was friendly, place was roomy, and food was good. Well lit and not super crowded.
