It's standard Mexican fare, but it's consistently good and great prices. It's family friendly and fast, so it's easy to grab it to go or stop by for a quick meal.

The atmosphere is not anything special, but it is my favorite place to go for Mexican food. Lunch and dinner are both very tasty and great portions. You will not leave hungry. This Resturant is one of a chain; this one is my favorite, but they are all yummy.

I ate here yesterday while on a business trip. The food was ok. I had a shrimp and fish grilled platter. It was actually pretty decent, but nothing special. Next time I will look around for some place with a little more "spice".

I know this is probably not authentic Mexican, but my family loves it. They have the normal lunch and dinner combos as well as great chicken soup, nachos and fajitas. The staff is always very friendly and attentive. Compared to other chains, I think they have the best salsa. The restaurants I've visited are clean but I haven't visited all their locations.

A bit chain oriented in style, not a fancy place, but the service was great, the good was very good and the margaritas were pretty good.

Very reasonably priced, as well. Best mexican I've found North of Atlanta.
