Food was sub par. Sour cream tasted old, and drinking water had a very odd taste. Food overall didn't seem fresh. Service is ok at best. Lady who sat and "greeted" has RBF and shows 0 interest. Not worth the money paid.

Quesadilla (cheese one) was very good. They don't overlook it, and they don't undercook it. I like the one on Thomas Rd better than the one on Cypress St. Fast and Friendly service. Also the prices are reasonable.

Quite disappointed by the flavor of the food. While it was good, it wasn't what I would normally expect for Mexican food--pretty bland. Large portions were appreciated. Refried beans and rice tasted scorched. Wish we had gone elsewhere.

Dinner here was great. The food arrived quickly, the waiter was nice. I am from Texas, so I am use to really good Mexican food, and I was not disappointed.
