The lunch portion of the chicken fajitas was more than I could eat. The flavor was excellent and all the sides were very good.

Service was not as good as it was before , food is good but we waited over 10 mins just to get waters . All depends on what you require when you go to a restaurant.

Had not been here for awhile, but learned once again why we like to eat here. Avoiding our usual menu items we went the seafood menu and may have discovered "another new favorite". I had what was listed as "new", Burrito Hacienda; grilled shrimp and tilapia in a 10 inch burrito covered by a wonderful cheese sauce. Normally I believe... More

We came here for dinner per TripAdvisor reviews, we were not disappointed. Food was delicious, service was fast and restaurant was clean. The only recommendation I would have is to have the cashier actually talk to the guests when they pay their bill. We never got a "how was everything" or even a "thank you" when we left. I take...

Recommended by our hotel, it was a good authentic Mexican dinner. More food than we could possibly eat. Would seek out again if in the area.

The food is very well prepared and attractively served by a very helpful, friendly wait staff. They are very attentive to your needs but not to the point that you feel rushed or pushed to leave, Very busy at normal mealtimes but relaxed atmosphere.

Fun decor, reasonable prices, large menu selection, food always good and all male waiters have always given us great service. I realize this is a custom (male waiters) but in America in 2017 I feel like somehow its not fair to potential great servers that are women.

Best Mexican restaurant around. My husband has his share of burritos and insists this place has the best. Place was busy as hard to find parking, but we didn't have to wait for a table.

This place is authentic! We travel through this state a couple times a year and last time we found this through yelp. It did not disappoint and reviews were spot on. We just left the restaurant again today and ordered different from last time, as the menu is huge. Again, we were not disappointed. Garlic shrimp salad was great and... More
