The food was excellent. There is one complaint, however, that needs to be said. We ordered a pitcher of margaritas and it was so full of ice that the four of us barely got a full glass. It would of been better and less pricey if we just ordered a single glass for ourselves. Other than that, the atmosphere, food... More

This was our first visit in many years. The service after sitting down was prompt, which is always a nice surprise. And the server listening to the fact that we asked for 3 waters when only 2 people were present was outstanding. The wait for food wasn't so bad, and the food was good. Service was good throughout the meal.... More

Great food, exceptional service, fair price (<$80 for fam of 4). We tried steak/shrimp fajitas (great taste, large quantity), chicken chimichanga (good), chicken fajitas (really tasty, large breast, grilled & sliced), and chicken durango (decent) - sides were impressive - creamed spinach; roasted pepper topped w/cheese & pico. Yum!!

We took our soon-to-be in-laws here because they wanted to eat at a place that does not exist where they're from. We had 11 in our party and arrived about 5:30 p.m. on a Saturday. We were seated rather quickly and our waitress was extremely attentive. All the people we spoke to were friendly enough, and the food is EXCELLENT,... More

I love that you can get interesting seafood dishes and not just traditional Mexican plates here. It is a bit pricier than just a Tex-Mex joint, but the atmosphere is nice and food was not only delicious, there was a lot of it. Get margaritas by the pitcher for your best economic bet.

$9.99 for an enchilada dinner. Cheese with Chili Con Carne rice and beans. Delicious. Make it bigger for a couple a bucks. Tilapia was also great.
