The waiter was patient with our order as we finished some business before paying attention to the menu. The house guacamole and margaritas were delicious. Kitchen was accommodating. Great meal.

Literally horrible. We should’ve left as soon as we walked in and saw food on the floor by empty tables that was never cleaned up the the staff. The food was gross, the drinks were gross, the overall experience was gross.

It was a disaster. As soon as we walked in we saw at least 3 tables that hadn’t yet been cleared - there were dirty dishes and glasses on the table and fries on the ground. When we left most of it was still there. When we sat down our table was sticky so luckily we were able to wipe it down with our own disinfectant wipes (thanks Covid - now we don’t leave home without them). We ordered drinks that never came - we asked several times and eventually got a substitute. We ordered guacamole as an app that arrived with the main course. My son did not have cutlery and a napkin until half way through the meal. The food was not that good either. It’s a shame because my husband loves Mexican food and it would have been great to have a good quality local place. Never again...

Food was really great and the prices were reasonable. The nachos may have been some of the best ever. Service was a little slow but the restaurant is new and still working out the kinks so we didn’t mind. I would highly recommend this spot.

The steak chunks in my fajita were big and tough and over spiced. I ordered a Cadillac margarita and it tastes like coconut. Waiter said maybe the previous drink they made in the blender was coconut but my drink was on the rocks. They remade the drink but not really I'm not stupid. When I got the glass back half the salt rim was gone so the obviously didn't Remake it..the tortilla chips were like thick soft in parts leather. This is our 2nd attempt there. We won't be back. You need a Chef, not a cook.

My reservation is at 7:45, my mother and I sat for 15 minutes and no one came to we are table. Not one waitress stop by to give us some water or told us it would be a second. As it was Mother’s Day it was sad to leave because my mother and I were hungry but it was unfair that no one came to see it. We left at 8:05pm

The service was poor. I ordered a margarita with no salt when it came with salt o pointed it out to the waitress and she replied “oh yeah looks like she put salt on it” and then walked away. The street corn had the consistency of corn chowder and my entree was so so covered with cheese I could not be sure there was actual meat in it. The Margarita was ok besides the salt issue I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant if you are actually hungry but if you want a decent margarita and some chips it’s probably ok if nothing else is needed .

We were seated promptly, in line with the reservation. We did have a short wait for our server (who never told us his name) to come by and take our drink orders. The cocktails were promptly delivered, we ordered the Kitchen Sink nachos and elected to wait on placing our entree order.

The nachos were good, but it was off putting at time of service to have the waiter remind us that MA limits seating to 90 minutes. We elected to split a fajita entree to “move things along”

The food was good and the bill was reasonable, so this was a decent value, but the service protocols need some work. We were on-site at 4:30p, the restaurant was well below capacity - but the beat-the-clock reminder reeked of table flipping more than regulatory time limits.

There was nothing here that made this a compelling dining experience and in a competitive marketplace, that can be trouble

hostess was horrible - would not let us sit outside despite plenty of open tables
then no to a both as we were a party of 2 -- only to watch her seat 3 more parties of 2 at the open boths.

drinks were all pre-mixed overly sugary and sour What mexican place makes a bad margarita

Chicken Tacos had water pouring out of them. Which of course made the chicken cold ( they didnt drain the salsa.)

I asked for steak/ chicken fajitas ( that crazy combo was not on the menu ) they up charged it nearly 25% as if they gave you something special - it was 4 small pieces of steak and 4 TINY pieces of chicken ( they split up a chicken nugget) the whole dish was smothered in oil ...

Aside from the drinks, the tacos and fajitas it was probably one of the worst meals/ experience we have had in years. Which is to bad as the other Local's in the small chain are great.. -

The manager did take 1/2 the bill off which was nice.. but we were in an out in 26 minutes.. It felt like a fast food joint.

Our family gets together monthly and tries new restaurants. The waiter was very slow to introduce himself and had to be asked his name. The tequila list is short so if you are look for variety, this isnt the place. I asked for the Casa Amigo anejo neat while others ask for a shot and we all had the exact same glass and amount. We requested orange slices and they don’t have any...smh. What bar doesn’t have orange slices?
Th popcorn shrimp was very very small and breaded coating was soggy. Do not order. We sent ours back. The swordfish taco, was ok.

The cuisine isn’t authentic. You should iust go to taco bell. A couple of members of my party were sick Friday night and all day Saturday.

Food was fresh and prepared as stated on the menu. The blackened chicken was excellent so be prepared for quite a kick of spices! We also had a wonderful, personable and efficient wait person named Jasmine. She was definitely part of the 5 star experience!

This dinner was my first restaurant meal in over a year due to the plague. We ate outdoors. I felt that it was a virgin experience; a restaurant, this could catch on. The food was very good. The drinks were generous, and the service was both efficient and friendly. I will not only recommend this restaurant, but I will return frequently myself. THAT IS HOW MUCH I ENJOYED IT
