Came here with my coworkers for lunch. The service was okay but the food was not the best. They serve chips and salsa like most Mexican restaurants do but their salsa was definitely from those that you get at a store. We had the guacamole...More

Try the Mariachi burrito, one of our favorites.. The chips & fresh salsa go great with a pitcher of their Margaritas! A good place for a couple or a family. Small parking lot on site.

Am a senior, so the parking attendant was a blessing, kept things like a car cutting in front of me on a civil level. A token of appreciation goes a long way. Lots of young people, noisy. Wonderful frozen lime margarita, “the skinny”. Huge portions,...More

Sorry for the delay, back in Orlando FL. Didn’t ask, but the portions were so large, I took half of it home. I’m sure they can make all of the order to go.
