Not great. Service a little slow. She as very nice but slow. We were there in mid afternoon, so it wasn’t crowded. Food was ok. I probably wouldn’t go back. I didn’t like the salsa. It had a Smokey flavor to it. Chips were good.

I eat at Botanas II whenever I am in the mood for good Mexican food. The service is excellent, fast and affordable. The food is authentic and delicious. I always order the fresh guacamole and cheese and onion enchiladas with verde sauce... delicious!

This place used to be a banquet hall for weddings and now it's an amazing Mexican restaurant! I'm not sure how long it's been under new ownership but it's great. There is a big bar area and lots of tv's to watch the big game....More

The title says it all. The margaritas were great! The food was delicious. I had steak fajitas, hubby had shrimp fajitas. Mine were good. The steak was tender and seasoned just right. A great mix of vegies. Guacamole was fresh and one of my favorites.
