While the menu is typical fast food Mexicon, the quality is much better than average. The service is normally very good. Good specials on mixed drinks.

What a delight. We had a collection of 13 diners---and we had an experienced server and a newbie. Yazmin and Gaby were charming, efficient, personable and a delightful team. They gave us nothing to grouse about. They were not overwhelmed; they were caring and considerate. And the food was great too

Try the rancherita bowl for something a bit different. I've been going to this restaurant for several years, but it has recently changed management. The new folks are very friendly and have changed the menu. While they have the standard tacos and enchiladas, they also have lots of new flavors......take a chance and try something new. I'm happy to have... More

Great late lunch. We did not know what to expect. Every dish we ordered was very tasty. Definitely a place to re-visit

I've honestly never really been into mexican food, but I was impressed with this place. We came here while my wife's dad was in town. We were all thoroughly satisfied with our meal - the portions were large enough that I was the only one who could finish my meal (barely), and I'm a pretty big guy. I had the... More

Their food just keeps on improving. New, higher end menu, but still reasonably priced. Great drinks, love their homemade salsa - the best in town. Huge portions, well prepared food.

A dear friend of mine, who I haven't b seen in years, was in Raleigh so I drove down from Virginia to see her and we agreed to have dinner at this restaurant and catch up. Unfortunately on four separate occasions they got our order wrong and in between having to make constant corrections and the over attentive staff, who... More

The service has always been mediocre at that place and the food just okay. The only reason we go there really is for the fabulous $5 margaritas which they normally did on Saturday nights. But now that is gone and after what happened with the service Saturday night we are gone! I got there before the rest of my party... More

Went to this restaurant today for a family dinner and was more then pleased with the service, food, & atmosphere. My server was prompt and always had drinks filled even with a big party. And the Steak Tacos had my taste buds watering for more. Highly recommend.
