Overpriced is putting it mildly. Food was awful, service was worse. Overcharged us on our bill to top it off. Save your money and go somewhere else. Taco Bell would have been a better choice and this is coming from a foodie.

The food here is what saves them. The service is quite slow. It looks like they didn't have enough staff to take care of the amount of guest in house. Everything took quite a while but I was hanging with family so it wasn't too bad. The drinks here are terrible. Sorry not going to lie. We all had margaritas and they were awful. That is not good for a Mexican restaurant. The food portions are big and the prices are good. However, with all the amazing Mexican restaurants in NY and Long Island, I probably won't be back.

The food is very authentic and the portions I’m very generous! Very well-balanced menu with many many options in all categories fish chicken meat and vegetarian This is not my first visit their repeat restaurant always consistently good on the atmosphere is very very pleasant. Not to mention they know how to make a great cocktail with real alcohol the margaritas are exceptional. Go hungry and you will be rewarded!

Food was below average. They didn’t bring everything I ordered. I was annoyed so I didn’t even bother to tell them. No Corona beer. What kind of Mexican restaurant doesn’t have Coronas.

Staff was friendly and quick service was provided. I wish they had at least gotten the order correctly.

Would I go back. No. Recommend. No.

I was pleasantly surprised how good my meal was! I don't care for very spicy food. I had the Mayo combo, everything was well seasoned & tasty. Not spicy! Everything tasted freshly made. I'm looking forward to returning soon!

Food was fresh, flavorful and authentic. Steaks were juicy and cooked to the correct temperature, not overcooked. Continuous flow of crispy, tortilla chips and tasty desserts. Went in a group of 8 and 2 of our group cannot eat spicy foods and the kitchen was happy to oblige. Friendly attentive staff made the night extra enjoyable.

When we arrived we were surprised it was in a strip mall. Restaurant was casual and sparse in furnishings. Server was very accommodating, very sweet and very attentive. Food was excellent!!! Owner/chef Came out to check on us and make sure we were enjoying the food, which we definitely were! We are adding this our list. Looking forward to a return visit

The food was delicious and very good portions. Seems like they were understaffed when we were there. The overall ambiance could be better for the prices paid. There was a pile of supplies on the chairs in the corner near the entrance which was not a welcoming sight.
