Good not great Mexican food. More low end than I expected for an open table restaurant. Waited a very long time for food. House margarita was disappointing. Main entree was very good.

We thought this was some of the best Mexican food we’d ever had. Our service was excellent, the coin margarita fabulous and the queso authentic.

Kitchen was overwhelmed with the crowd. Our food took over 1 hour to get to our table. When it arrived it was well prepared, hot and very enjoyable. Just too many orders foe the kitchen to manage. The service was outstanding, especially under the over crowded circumstances.

We have eaten at the north location many times and it is very good. Friendly people, good food. This was our first and last time at the south location. Service was very underwhelming. Drinks and food slow to arrive, servers forgetting things and unwelcoming. Enchiladas were around room temperature and fajitas were grossly over cooked (rubbery shrimp). Disappointing for $100 tab. Maybe it was a bad night, but we’re staying with the north location from now on.

I love their food. However, there was gravel in my beans. Apparently, they weren’t washed well prior to cooking. So happy to be able to dine in even though the atmosphere is on a stripped down scale. Felt like dining in a mall food court. Possibly the lighting. We will still dine there because the food is worth it, the service is excellent and it’s convenient.
