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.

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 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.

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.

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!

Everything about this place was fantastic...from parking to service to atmosphere and a fantastic meal. I generally don't eat large meals and I usually have food to take home, but this was so good I ate it all! This was the best Mexican food I've ever had by far!

The food is mediocre and doesn't nearly deserve the prices they charge. The worst part is you pay $15 for a large margarita and get no descernable tequila. We won't be back.

They are generous in their serving. I am pretty consistent with my order - enchiladas! But I also love their chili relleno with rice and beans. Their churro donuts complete a wonderful dinner date with my husband. The hospitality of the greeters and servers is outstanding. The staff take the time to pass by and inquire if everything is okay. Margaritas are delicious as always, never watered down. We are definitely satisfied customers.
