Fun place and quite lively. The food is good but not exceptional. The portions are good. It won't WOW you but you will get a good meal at a fair price.

Went here with friends for dinner. Few vegetarian options but plenty for the meat eaters I was with so not big deal. We started with nachos which weren't too bad. Pricey for the size but decent. On to the main course... One friend had very expensive chicken tacos that she didn't even want to take home to go. Another had steak fajitas that within an hour made her violently ill. I ordered a salad. I have never had a salad I couldn't take more than a bite of. It looked bad, smelled worse and was completely inedible. If you are craving Mexican... Even Taco Bell is a better bet!

We've eaten here many times and always found the food delicious and carefully prepared. Our favorite s are the stuffed chicken and the salmonfilet. Their Margaritas are unbeatable.

This place is strictly for the young and confused. The food is inedible. Tortillas are cold and rubbery. Actually, EVERYTHING is cold and rubbery. The over-riding theory about the food here seems to be to take a can of beans, add some tabasco sauce, call it Sort of Mexican, and what more do you want? Staff is of the "You got it!" school of service: just keep repeating that phrase energetically enough and no one will find out that you don't know anything about the ingredients.

The place was remarkable crowded on a week night. Which goes to show you ... something.

Shared a great meal with five others. Various meals selected including pancakes, salmon, salad, skirt sreak, quesadilla. All great! Swift service, polite staff, immaculately clean rest room, very reasonable prices. A good experience. Would definitely visit again.
