I am a big fan of Mexican cuisine, but food there is definitely not so great. I had a guacamole and a veggie burrito which was mostly just black beans inside.. and the guacamole is just ok. The margarita was good though.

Ordered both the chicken and beef fajitas which were quite good, only mildly seasoned. There was just enough to share between two people, although if you were quite hungry then you wouldn't want to.

After a day at Unversal Studios Theme Park, this was a family friendly location. The service was great and a great value.

I've come here for decades but this time it was after Universal Studios. We only had to wait 20 minutes for our family of four. The seating was crammed into a large room but we were just glad to get a table in City Walk on a Saturday night. We each had special orders but the waiter got them all... More

Yes my title is a dish at this location!!! The food will have you stuffed and it is authentic so if you used to Tex-Mex ask questions before you place your order. The drinks are okay but the food is delicious!!!

I ordered beef and chicken tacos for my little girls, but there was a huge blob of fat in the beef taco. Glad I found that before she bit in. Our order came out wrong, but the waitress tried to make it up by bringing us the chicken taco (we had gotten two beef) at the very end of our... More

We should have taken notice and turned around right at the front door when we were rudely greeted by the hostess and told there was a 15 to 20 minute wait when the restaurant is half empty. Once we did get a table and sat down our server was actually quite nice and the food was just average. I think... More

Very plain and disappointing food. Would not recommend. The horchata was good. Very busy, as its in Universal Citywalk.
