Came in one day after church for lunch. Very interesting venue for sure! Tortilla Soup and Brisket tacos were both good, cost $11 each. Sangria was a little pricey at $9 a glass though. Overall a good meal, I'd return.

Thanks for stopping in and enjoying a nice lunch with us back in January. As the weather gets warmer we hope to see you out on our patio for another great meal!

One will find here a different and unique type of Mexican food. Excellent service. It’s a very well decor restaurant.

We eat here all the time - good chips and salsa. Good menu, reasonable prices. Liquor prices are high. Enchiladas and charro beans are very good. They play strange music though - not typical for a Mexican restaurant. They need to change it.

There were three of us there for dinner. Fish tacos and a taco salad were ordered. All we're OK, but nothing special. Had a side of guacamole which was excellent. Service was good, especially since the place was packed. Parking was difficult - many of...More

Love this place! Victor, my waiter was very efficient- got all my specifics correct. I was hoping to get a smaller version of the fajita plate, for lunch. Wanted just fajitas, corn tortillas, pico and guacamole. Still cost me $20.! It was very delicious, but...More

PRO's: This citywide chain of Tex-Mex restaurants puts out dependable, average quality food. The margaritas are fair and the hot sauce is hot in taste but lacks spiciness and texture. After each visit, I promise not to return but since we live nearby and friends...More
