Maybe it's because when we went there were not a lot of people, but it just seemed kind of dirty. The food was good- typical mexican flavors. The margarita was delicious and the server was friendly (and cute!). Overall, it wasn't something I'm craving to...More

I ate in the bar, which was very dark. The service was good, but the food was mediocre at best. The hot salsa wasn't at all hot, and the rice was completely tasteless. The prices were high for Mexican food.

Went at like 3pm and there weren't many customers. Excellent service, quick, and great food. Tried a new margarita with help of the waitress. Love the chips and homemade salsa they bring to your table. Great deal with coupon we had!

This is our favorite Mexican Place...And, Heather is our go-to Waitress! The food is consistently good! The warm chips with two temperatures of salsa are guaranteed to start off any dinner on the correct note! Really great tex-mex!
