We had lunch here at the recommendation of friends. Lifeless food much of which tasted like it came out of can, under seasoned sides, and way too little attention from the wait staff.

Not real fancy but good Mexican food, nice portions.
You won't be disappointed eating here.

Food can be a bit inconsistent but always good. Be careful with the chips as they are some of the best in town.

There are two of these restaurants in the area that are close to one another - this one in Ballwin and in Grover. Based on experience, I prefer the Grover one best. While the decor is interesting and the delivery of the food to the table is speedy, the quality of the individual server tends to vary. It may be do to the increased traffic but there just isn't the same vibe and quality of service as the Grover location. Plus, several of the tables are against a curved wall. Thus, the benches end up facing the table in an awkward position. If you are a person that requires a little extra space, these tables (although interestingly decorated) are not for you.
