It is a nicer Mexican place. I ate here quite a bit while staying at a nearby hotel. My favorite thing to order is the Special Dinner.

Service is really fast and friendly. Clean, nice tables and floors. Very comfortable eating here. High booths so you don't have to look at other people stuff their faces (awesomeness). Food is really great too! Excellent.

I've enjoyed the food several times. Never a bad meal. The food is fresh and served quickly. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating. I've never had to wait for a table. It doesn't rate 5 stars as sometimes the bar area is quite loud,...More

Service was very good. There were quite a few people dining during a mid-afternoon visit. Chips and salsa were not that good. Meals were nothing special. We are not fans of this chain of Mexican restaurants, although, this one was better than Marshfield or Ladysmith's.
