We ordered the combination nachos...twice. The first order wasn't enough for the 3 of us so we ordered another one. The second order had about twice as much ingredients as the first order and it was hotter. I'm not sure why the second one was hotter since they were made at the exact same station. Anyway, the food was good.... More

I have been hear a couple of times when visiting my daughter at college. It is a cafeteria style ordering process and food comes out fairly quickly. There is a decent fixings bar and the place is very spacious. Ford was good solid casual Tex-Mex food. I normally don't like refried beans but I liked theirs. Nice casual stop close... More

If this is good food to you, you have no taste buds? Should have gone next door to Cheddar's. Took my dad to the dr in Waco and he wanted fajitas and this was close to the dr. No thank you. Will look up restaurants on Trip Advisor next time! Usually trustworthy but different palates up here.

The food is outstanding and reasonably priced so you can take the whole family without breaking the bank. I had the enchilada plate and it was excellent. You get... More
