    All of the great reviews should most definitely be believed and the few negatives should be dismissed completely. We were a party of three; we had the Chicken Acapulco, Pollo Mexicana and Chicken Quesadillas. Each entre came with rice and refired beans and each was excellently prepared and quite flavorful. We shared a small plate of nachos that were just OK. Service was efficient, and we will return again.

    We have dined here for years and have never had a complaint. The restaurant is cozy, staff friendly and accommodating. The margaritas outstanding. The food is delicious, portions are large, you won’t go hungry. I recommend the bean soup, it’s a must.

    We’ve ordered take out from here often. It was my first time dining in and elected to sit at a table rather than at the bar. Very slow service for (2) with restaurant mostly empty upon arrival (table of 2 and 4) and more than 1 server on duty. Server was very nice but she was not attentive and seemed to wander around casually talking to other staff. It took almost 10 minutes before we even placed a drink order; thankfully we were served water by another member of staff a few minutes after arrival. A table of 8 were sat about 25 minutes later and received all of their food less than 10 minutes after we did. My husband and daughter dined in a few weeks prior with same server so he warned me after the drink debacle that she was really slow with them too. Food was delicious as always — we’ll just stick with sitting at the bar or takeout from now on.

    Looks are deceiving. You must find street parking. It doesn’t look like the best area of AC. The food was good. I can not complain there. The servers were very nice and kept the water filled even if the food was slow to come out. Prices were very reasonable.

    The food was very good, just as it was 15 yrs ago. The server was the unpleasant part of our dinner. It was not too busy when we arrived, but started filling all seats within 15 minutes. The waitress was not too pleasant or attentive to our needs. We tried to not let that experience take away from a good meal. The bus person was our saving grace.
