Authentic, beyond yummy but be willing to pay for it. No regrets. Come here when I want to spoil myself. I can easily spend $25-30 on lunch and it is entirely worth it.

Awesome food, awesome chips, awesome Dip. For the price, you really can't beat this place. It is much more authentic than most of Memphis's Tex-Mex restaurants.
