    The food was very good and felt like a good value. The location was weird. Not only was it next to a strip/dance club it is next door and the music playing made me feel like it could be part of the same establishment. Nothing other than the food said Mexican restaurant to me. It just felt strange. But hey the food was fresh and flavorful. Also we walked from the resorts world and felt a little scary crossing the road even with traffic lights and crosswalks. I am not sure we would go again because of all of that. If I was a guy and on a guys trip and wanted to go to the club and eat dinner this would make more sense. Not for dinner with my 16 yo daughter and husband.

    They failed to check us in using open door. Chips and salsa was great. Our order was lost the first time so we finished our drinks by the time the food arrived. Carnitas was good, could’ve been a little a crisper.

    The food here was really good. You can tell it doesn’t have the preservatives of a lot of your Mexican restaurants. The chips were really good. Had a corn taste to them. It is located next to a strip club concerned me at first, however, the clientele did not reflect that And I had a great experience there

    Service was bad. I asked for a cocktail and it never came. In the middle of ordering the server walked away. Our food took over 30 minutes to arrive. We asked someone for silverware and were told to ask the server. The enchiladas were not good.

Ordered the shrimp tacos which were outstanding. The service was impeccable and professional! We will be back. This will definitely be our go to restaurant for authentic Mexican fare! 🍴🌮🌮🌮

    The food was delicious. The service was good. We went on NYE at 530. They were setting up for "the party" so that was a little unlikable. The table was dirty when we were seated. Will definitely give it another try, just not on NYE!

    Our server, and our manager were beyond accommodating. I called ahead to see if they could provide my guest with a hamburger as she doesn’t do well with spicy food. And although they were sold completely out of hamburgers, due to a prior day special, they were able to provide her the surf and turf meal with minimal seasoning Was above and beyond accommodating. They were AMAZING!!! This next statement is not against this location, but regarding the Southwest Valley location. I live less than 10 minutes from Centra location, but had no choice to book due to timing at Strip location. Can someone explain as to why fajitas were eliminated from the Centra menu? You only offer fajita bowl. You offer soft tacos & quesadillas which are made with flour tortillas, so you already have the flour tortillas on site for the quesadillas & soft tacos, why would you pull fajitas off the menu when they come with flour tortillas and only offer fajita bowls? An easy dinner & drop off at airport, now had me having to reroute myself to the strip location. And no, I did not have the capacity or luxury of time to go to the Tivoli location.

    Disappointed. This place was recommended by a local so had high hopes, as we were celebrating a milestone for our family. The staff were nice but the service was slow (they forgot to bring a couple of things we ordered), it was very sports-bar like (which is fine, just not what we were expecting) and the food was not good. The fajita chicken was rubbery and the coating on the fish from my fish tacos was soggy (not crispy). Also the fish didn’t taste fresh. They brought us a complimentary dessert - flan - which was actually excellent. Drinks were decent as well. Also, our table was cramped and wobbly.

    90 percent tasted like the food was store bought. The chips, guacamole and chips screamed store bought. My meal was basically room temperature. However the drinks were top notch and our waiter (Marquis) was an absolute pleasure to be around. He was the highlight of a rather basic meal

    Service was extremely prompt. The bartender waited on us at a table, and he was excellent. He gave us the best recommendations for taco Tuesday. I highly recommend getting any of the crispy tacos. The shell on that taco is outstanding, and nothing like I’ve ever had before.
