The wait staff were very helpful and nice. They give you chips and salsa and the food was warm and good. Careful of the plates they can be very hot.

Salsa is excellent. Food was okay. Margaritas are good but strong. I had the chicken nachos. Chicken, cheese and beans. Not much taste.

Had a birthday get together for my son. There was a suprise for him from the waitstaff. Had a fun time. The waitstaff is always very attentive without being pushy. The food is above average and the menu is expansive with a lot of choices.

This restaurant is usually quite busy. The food is good and waitstaff friendly. Mid-level priced with a daily lunch special.

I've eaten alot of Mexican food here In texas, but this place is down right gross. I'd rather eat $1.00 frozen patio dinners than eat at this place. How they have stayed in business for so long amazes me. It stinks too! A funky moldy...mildew...More
