Although the one time we actually got waited on, the food was quite good. Unfortunately the next 2 times, we could not get a server for a good 15 minutes - and the place was pretty empty. Quality of choices from the bar are very minimal and low end.

This was not my first visit here, but I can tell you that I'm never disappointed. The food and staff are always wonderful. Food is always as ordered is very delicious. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you are taken care of. I will be dining here again.

Place was clean and the wait staff were attentive, however the music was very loud (even after I asked them to turn it down). I ordered chicken nachos but had to order more cheese sauce as sauce was so thin. My husband's chicken burrito was average as were the refried beans. Will not be returning to this restaurant.

This place tries to be a Mexican restaurant, but the food is all Americanized. Even my kids thought that the food was terrible. Getting service to our table was very difficult. I would never go back here again, even for a free meal. The management of this place should be placed in stocks and have people throw coins at them.... More

Food, including desserts, not particularly good. Service is good and they do offer lunch specials and military discounts. Seems to lack the spirit of Mexican food.

Love going to San Jose to dinner or lunch. Start out with good chips and salsa and sodas or adult beverages. Then order from the menu and they bring out while it is hot. Delicious!

I have been there many times over the years and sometimes the food is awesome and then the next it's not that great. Service is pretty good.

As often happens when a local restaurant expands, too many changes occur and, sadly, the food is frequently the thing that goes south. That was the case today at lunch. Salsa had an odd taste, no 'white sauce'--the white creamy dip with jalapeno juice, runny cheese sauce on an otherwise good lunch dish, tasteless fish tacos with cabbage on top... More

I've gotten take out here several times, it is very good Mexican. Great chicken enchiladas, and guacamole is good (but not the best I've ever had). I like this location a lot better than the last one (service is a little better), and feels a lot more like other restaurants in the chain now (with my favorite being the location... More

One of our favorite Mexican restaurants in the area for salsa and chips and shrimp tacos. Good service, good prices, good food. I like the new restaurant, but the chairs at the tables are much too heavy and cumbersome for the dainty and weak, so we usually wait for a booth.
