I ordered a bean burrito with a side of rice. They brought my food to me with extra beans because they were out of rice. The food was just “meh” and my margarita just tasted like pure tequila. I wasn’t impressed. I had a great server but that was about it.

The food was okay, the service was below par. We ordered a couple apps and we were halfway through with our main course when they finally came to clear the apps, with a party of 6, the table was a mess. Really no reason to go back, nothing was above par, just being honest!

We sat in the bar. Cyvanah was the bartender and our server. We haven’t had such good service in a long time. No customer went waiting for anything. She took care of everyone at the bar and everyone at the tables, she didn’t miss a beat , she gave us everything we asked for and didn’t forget anything, she is a hard worker and very easy to talk to. She never stopped moving. She is a rock star!
The food was great, beer was ice cold with chilled glasses, the inferno sauce is to die for. 5 stars!
The only negative is the bathroom was dirty. That usually means the kitchen is dirty, which really freaks me out.

Family dinner for 5 over the holiday. Seated in a very long booth, ample space to fit all and our gifts.

Large menu with lots of options. Great salsa. Entree's were typical Mexican food options. Waiter was new, but handled everything expertly.

We overstayed our time as we have a lot to talk about, and no one pushed us to leave even though there was a big crowd in the restaurant, thank you.

Results: Food acceptable. Good Service. Enjoyable experience. Prices reasonable.

We have been going here for many years. The food quality and value have been consistently great. However, there seems to be a drop off in food quality. I ordered a la carte and had a cheese enchilada and two crisp shredded beef tacos. I judge a Mexican restaurant by its non-meat items. The cheese enchilada was not as good as I used to and the taco shells seemed to be less thick and tasteless. The service was superb.

Awkward. Never did meet our waitress. Wonder which one of the three we seen she was, serving the tables around us.
Ended up getting our drinks and food by walking over to bar, and placing our order there. If you want to be snubbed, great place to be.

This was great! 1/2 off apps at happy hour. Nice big patio. Only reason for 4 stars for service was because it was so busy that it was a little slow. All in all a great experience

We had made reservations and were seated promptly. The service was very good and the food was excellent. I had heard that they were not as good as they used to be but I think this has changed as I couldn’t have asked for a better meal.

They were able to work a party of 7 in for dinner when I made the reservation at the other location and not the DC Ranch location!! So nice and accommodating! Service was very good, food very good. We could all carry on a conversation even with the music! Great location!!!

We went for bar food (Nachos and quesadillas) to watch the World Series game and were not disappointed. Our waitress was fantastic, which made our experience all the better.

This restaurant has gone downhill. With so many Mexican restaurants in the area, I will chose a different one next time. The food was not great. Service was okay. Atmosphere outside was nice.

One of our favorite Mexican restaurants. I like their sister restaurant in DC Ranch a bit more only because it is newer and has a modern decor; the food is the same at both.

Do not rely on pics in open table. Place does not look anything like photos. Food was average, staff and service was friendly. This place had a lot of families with kids and that is probably who it is best suited for.

Beginning with the hostess, Ruby, we had a great start to our first visit to this very tasty Mexican restaurant. The food was absolutely special and with just enough fire — and large enough serving size for leftovers the next day. The margaritas were very good. Our waiter was just ok but we shall return!
