    Great food

    We go here every Friday for lunch, and have made it a ritual. The food is always fresh and made to order, nothing sitting on the back burner waiting to be served to you. The chips (compimentary) and salsa are the best by far, and a lot of variety from plantain chips, red,blue, and yellow chips and sweet potato chips. The salsa made fresh. They have the $10.00 lunch specials with plenty to choose from. My favorite is the spinach steak salad. Always prepared when you order. Service is good. It can get crowded at lunchtime, but always worth the wait. Friendly, warm atmosphere and casual. This place has become our favorite lunch spot. You will not be disappointed!

    best steak fajita in neighborhood

    I have been ordering the fajitas for years! The steak fajita is good quality meat and well made (best quality meat for fajitas anywhere) the dish is big so I can split it into 2 seperate meals. They serve it with beans and rice (both in seperate containers so you can reheat and different temps) they have gone out of their way to make me special meals and are always so nice on the phone, even at 1 am. They food is good and mild in spices (you can ask them to make it hotter) Delivery comes hot and in just a few minutes. I do not understand how they give such big portions, at the quality it is and keep the prices so low.

    Disappointing food in general!

    The tuna was burnt, the mahi mahi dry, the guacamole sad, the drinks... well can't go wrong with bottled beer. Ask for the sweet potato chips they serve with the tortilla chips, really hits the spot. So yeah, if you love great chips and good bottled beer, great place to go.

    Overpriced "Mexican"

    Guacamole was decent, but oversalted even for my salt loving taste buds. I had the tequila shrimp enchiladas and my date had the mahi mahi, both of which were below average...seemingly just bland food smothered in cheese. Beans and rice were undercooked by several minutes. The final straw came when we opened up our take home box and found rice, beans, and pork. We will never go back.The redeeming factor was the chips and salsa.

    Best margaritas in town

    We had some great strong margaritas while dining outside!! Our waiter was so friendly and explained everything on the menu. I wanted spicy food and definitely got want I wanted. I can't wait to go back...and loved the fresh guacamole!!
