“It's hard to screw up Mexican food. So they don't.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

The food is pretty good and they fill you up. The place is a little outdated but my girl and I keep going back. We have been there at least 10 times by her request, and with no objection from me. Parking is a little tough sometimes.

“Excellent service and great tasting food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2012

This restaurant is consistently good! Every time I've been here, which is numerous times, the food and service is always excellent. They always honor your reservations. The wait staff is always friendly and attentive. It's always booked to capacity when you go there on weekends, so that tells you just have favorable this establishment is!

“Just average Mexican”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2011

I have been coming to this place since it was Casa Margarita in the 70's-80's. Has changed hands a few times and is now a shadow of their former self. Just OK Mexican food.

“WOW, you have to go to this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2011

I had the breaded veal with pineapple salsa, black beans and rice. It was one of the top 10 meals I have ever had in my life. Some of the meals I refer to were in Heidelberg Germany, Salzburg Austria, Sedona Arizona, Hugo’s in Las Vegas just to name a few. If you are anywhere in driving distance, go there, you won’t be sorry.
