Great margaritas, and food.
Atmosphere was impressive, and they have live music!
Friendly staff, and the place was packed even after a major winter storm.
Had the 5.00 happy hour food special, a prime rib taco.
Best taco I've ever had.

Thank Cathy W

Portions are plentiful, nothing noteworthy, not too loud. Solid food.

We stopped in after seeing a movie, and the place was just dirty and messy looking. I wanted to go, but we stayed, thinking everyone has good and bad days, so why not?
Well, service was awful, place looked dirty, the food was like microwave tacos, just not any good. The only way this place must be staying alive is because of tequila, and the huge drinks they serve made with it. I keep hoping for a breakthrough here, but now we just go to Mezcal in Leominster Center. I like it when I enjoy my food without anaesthesia, i.e. tequila, I am sad about this, as it is so conveniently located for us, but....no mas.

Having not looked at the on line menu in advance, we expected a straight Mexican bill o'fare. To our surprise, in addition to Mexican favorites, the offerings included items such as prime rib, French Dip, burgers and muffuletta.

We wondered whether it would be possible to excel in so wide variety of selections remembering that bonafide east coast diners to seem to manage it and on an even grander scale.

We ordered a Chimichanga and a muffuletta and both were very generous in size. The Chimi was pretty authentic but the muffuletta, while very tasty, was not consistent with the Louisiana original i that the meats were different and the olive salad, which was more of a Medical than Italian flavor (as is the original), was served on the side as opposed to on the sandwich leaving the sandwich drier than it could have been. In addition, although generous in size, as mentioned, the filling did not teach the ends of the bread leaving two of the four quarters fairly bare.

The armadillo egg app was good as were the house margaritas and the ice cold beers.

The service (Chelsea) was excellent and the graciousness of the hosts (owners?) was evident and very refreshing.

Parking is ample and we'd recommend a reservation on weekend evenings.

If you are attending a performance at the Mount Wachusett Community College Theater, a 15% discount on your check may be available with your ticket stubs. Unfortunately, we were unaware of this when we visited.

We will return and will try other offerings.

This place knows how to cook vegetables - they are abundant and crisp and well-spiced. We were disappointed in how rundown the facility has become - the women's restroom was very shabby, and the outside looks dumpy. The Mexican food is still excellent. I had the jambalaya, which featured spicy sausage, tender shrimp, and blackened chicken. My husband had the spinach and mushroom enchiladas and both the spinach and the mushrooms were abundant and superb.
