“Consistent and good”
Reviewed 24 November 2012

We have been going here for many years. While it may not be a "gourmet" Mexican style restaurant, we have always found it to be good and quite enjoyable.The service is prompt and friendly. The portions are quite adequate and the food is fresh and well prepared. It is also a good family destination. It should readily satisfy anyone's desire for a night out without any hassle or concerns.

“Bland, Tasteless Mexican? Food”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

I really should have ran out after I tried the salsa. Like a can of tomato puree in a bowl. I had the Chicken enchilada with white jalapeno sauce. Not even a hint of jalapeno flavor and chicken inside was plain without spices. My wifes chimi tasted like beef gravy mix and onions. No green chili to be found. I'll bet the cook was from Iowa or Ohio not the Southwest.

“Great authentic Mexican”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

I have been here several times and have never been disappointed. The food is plentiful and piping hot. You can request hotter salsa for your chips if you prefer it. The nacho plate for about $8 can be a meal for four!

“Hard to find but worth it”
Reviewed 1 January 2012

It's not that hard to figure out why no one's reviewed this place in 3 1/2 years. It's in the back of one of those fancy industrial parks that tries to look like a residential area. You can't see it from the main drag. But make the effort and find it. Manager was friendly, waitress was efficient, fajitas were tasty, price was right.
