We ate here with a group of family and extended family. Almost everyone in our group of 13 ate something different. My son tried the Grilled Cactus bowl and I tried a Hawaiian Chicken dish--- both were very unique and very good. The chips and salsa we had while waiting were great also. The Margaritas were very refreshing. The staff... More

Pretty empty resteraunt, yet all drinks were let go empty multiple times during dinner. Took a while to get our food, which was all very greasy. Waiter was too busy flirting with the girls a few tables away to do his job.

Stopped on way to Memphis for lunch. The portions are huge. Better than that, this is now my favorite Mexican fare outside of Mexico. The place is very clean with a nice decor. The menu is large. The food is absolutely great. Highly recommended

It's not a chain but it may as well be. It serves standard strip mall Tex-Mex, The service is slow and the food is bland.

I was very disappointed in this place having heard such good things from many people. However the quality of the food was lacking. It was very much a very bad knock off of tex-mex that I have had done much better at many other places. I might be harder than most as I am from Texas but with the reviews... More

The service was fast and the food was good. The main thing that needed change was the cleanliness of the restaurant and the restrooms. There was stuff on the floor everywhere you looked. The bathroom sink had hair in it. I told the waiter but he did not seem to understand.

Interestingly enough, on a Saturday afternoon Labor Day weekend, this place was pretty busy. It's in a small strip mall just north of Ripley. My husband remembered this place from a few years ago and said it was good. So we went there with our 9 month old baby and our niece and nephew. The food was standard - nothing... More
