The chips are Salty and the Salsa is a bit spicy but both are free so no complaints there. Our dinners were good, the service was fine also. I prefer this as a healthier alternative to the typical Mexican stops that are very greasy. We wouldnt hesitate to go back.

The positive is the outdoor seating! Service and food are ok and prices are a little high for what you get. Disappointed in the kids menu selections and lack of al a crate items.

First time to this restaurant. As were walked towards the front door we noticed the litter that surrounded the landscape beds and sidewalk.

Salsa was chunky and had a small heat taste to... More

Met a friend here, for a late Friday lunch. Her location choice. It was our first time dining here. Christian was our server. The service was above average, as was the food.

Looking at all of the Mexican restaurants in NE Indy, this on showed up as a 4.5 star. Its not bad, just another chain type presentation. Guac had good spice, refried beans were very smokey, black beans were too sweet. Salsa and chips were good and plentiful, chicken tortilla soup was not as we expected(loaded with rice). Pork tamale seemed... More

I spent a great birthday with the family on Sunday. I had my OTB gift card for a free bowl of queso and the grandkids really enjoyed their chicken quesadilla. Everyone had a great time and the server was able to keep on top of things with two active young guests. Thanks for all of the napkins for all of... More

Went for lunch. Food was very good. but the temperature in the restaurant was cold. I do not like to inhale my food because I'm uncomfortable. Maybe it was just that day.Service was satisfactory.
