It's not the same good food as it used to be. No flavor, dry and red sauce is brown, lacking any Mexican taste. There was seven of us and everyone had the same problem. We are ordered different items, too. Service was outstanding.

We received a friendly welcome by a hostess and seated immediately. Our server arrived promptly and introduced herself then took our order. Our meals and drinks arrived in a timely manner and were as ordered.
