A huge dining room always with a din of voices. Always festively decorated, and quite busy. Both décor and food are simple, but everything tastes great and corn chips are freshly baked for you. Full bar with standing counters, where you can watch the flatscreens and sip a cool one if you have to wait for a table. Over the... More

After going here for years I'm sorry to say this may be the last. I literally just left and am sorry to say it was not a good experience. I just gave this place a rave review less than a month ago. But tonight may have ended it for me. Our server Letucia A. came to our table 30 seconds... More

Love the tortilla chips and salsa. Everything is brought out fresh and made to order. Our favorite is Chicken Guadalajara. Big portion with a unique flavor. Also love the fajitas. Can't go wrong a friendly place with great prices.

Definitely a great place to come and hang out with friends. Great bar and food is plentiful! You definitely don't go home hungry! I suggest the eggplant Royale! So delicious!

I hadn't been here since college but wanted to try it again. No wait when we got there on a Wednesday at 6:00, but full. Tables are close together which I take as a good sign it's usually packed. Service was fantastic and our waitress very attentive. Food was solid, but a little spicier than I was hoping for. Blackened... More

Excellent ambience and food, but not the place to go if your spouse has hearing problems with background noise.

This is a large restaurant which can handle corporate or family groups at long tables. The restaurant was loud. The food was ok but not memorable.
