Tammy was a great waitress. There were five of us and all of our orders came out perfect! The margarita swirl and margaritas on the rocks were excellent. Three of us had the chile rellanos and they were superb. The five of us had a great time and always come to this restaurant when on our annual "girls" trip!

Compared to local tex mex places n regional chains, its a bit more upscale with food, bar, n decor. Also more consistent food. Safe choice n great value. I prefer the Pick (2,3,4) items. Its the best value and always the perfect combination platter.

Years ago this place was considered the best mexican food around but as we all know things have a way of changing for the better or worse, kinda like a marriage. In this case it has changed in a bad way simply because the food (in my opinion) was horrible and left a bad taste in my mouth like my... More

Kudos to the manager. I commented on the room temperature while in the lobby. He had the hostess seat us in a warmer part of the dining room. Our food was slow to arrive, I complained, a complimentary sopapilla was delivered. With that out of the way...our waiter was attentive and nice. The shrimp enchilada was very good and the... More

The best thing they have is fajita's and they are just okay. There is a chicken dish that is pretty good.

I decided to try this place for dinner because it looked cute and I wanted to try something new while I was visiting town. This was by far the worst 50$ I have ever spent at a restaurant. It started out bad when they served my chips and salsa, the chips were wet and you could fold them in half.... More

We met up with some family here. The entrance smelled and the floors were littered. The place was slow and staff seemed unconcerned. I ordered a sweet tea which told me all I needed to know. They container must have been so nasty because it tasted like mold. I kindly asked for a soda and found it to be nasty... More

Absolutely nothing was good about this visit other than my company. My Husband & I stopped in on New Years Day while traveling to visit family.
