    The food was good as always, and they made it to order as I requested. Our server knows us as regulars and was very attentive. It's usually pretty lively there, but we had gotten to restaurant fairly late and so we missed the crowd that was there, so it was relatively quiet. It was one of my better experiences there.

    Perfect place to celebrate a birthday sipping on a large margaritas, so tasty & refreshing. Order a combo plate, potato taco, chicken enchiladas and chile rellano. Of course, I was not able finish it all. The potato taco is one of the best I’ve had. Enchilada was delish. Service provided by Nathaniel was outstanding. He was attentive, polite and friendly!

    Love the food, our waiter was incredible kind and love your sitting. Your staff helped me because it was a very hot day and I sat outside and I came inside because I was getting woozy and the front desk girl looked at me and immediately gave me a large glass or ice water without me asking. Thank you

    Service was amazing as well as the ambiance. However, not many vegetarian options. Drinks are pricey, but food is not. Parking was an issue as well for the disabled, as they have only two spots for handicapped.

    I always come back for the mole - since I am currently on a keto lifestyle I ordered chicken mole with green salad. Next time I’ll ask for straight lettuce only, no croutons. Soooo good. The waiter was very accommodating. Plus the skinny Margarita on the rocks is delish!

    We are here mainly on Taco Tuesdays, but we tried something different...pollo con arroz. We did ask them to leave off green bell peppers, adding more red to the dish, and it was very good! I will be eating it again. Staff/Ambiance is good as always.

    My brother and I frequently come here for Taco Tuesday, and once in a while another day in the week for other selections. I don't drink, But my brother orders a Margarita every time and they look good. The food is good, and the staff is very attentive. They have the best made to order guacamole, and I think the best tacos for the price in Tuesdays of any restaurant we've gone to for that occasion. We will keep coming here as long as we live in the area.

    Our first time here and it was disappointing. The server never came back to check on us to see if we wanted a glass of water or another drink. We placed an order for an appetizer "taco fingers" and cut in half taquitos were what looked like some frozen chimichangas out of a bag and topped with a boat load of white cheese and very little lettuce, sour cream or guacamole. Still had hopes after this that our main entrées would be better. We ordered the "chile verde plate" and the "pollo en mole plate". The food came to our table cold, had no taste and plate presentation was by far just gross. My "pollo en mole" plate was just that, pulled/shredded chicken smothered in mole sauce with a side of rice and absolutely no taste for being a Mexican dish. My girlfriend ordered the "chile verde" plate and again the food was disappointing. The tomatillo green sauce was plain, no taste and the pork meat had no flavor. The best thing of our dinner would have to be the Negra Modelo and White Peach Blossom Margarita. Will I ever go back? That's a NO! Will I recommend to family, friends or others? That is also a big HELL NO!
