Upon walking into the restaurant, there was a dead mouse on the doorstep!! Grossed out, but not impeded, we had lunch there. It was very mediocre and as I looked at the other door to the outside (in another room), there was a huge gap under it large enough for mice to easily walk into the restaurant. Not on my... More

I thought it would be no big deal since it was Super Bowl Sunday and it wasn't busy at all. She checked a list on the wall and proceeded to lead us to the CLOSEST TABLE TO THE BATHROOM. I was shocked. I won't make that drive again.

My food was very bland. The special sauce was tasteless. I had the Taquileno Burrito. The main ingredient seems to be rice. My husband had the Tacos el Carbon. The meat was dry and no seasoning. Refried beans seems watery and just not very good. The portions are large, but who wants to eat a bunch of gloppy, bland food?... More

Since we moved from Colorado to Southwest Florida a few years ago, we miss good Mexican food. We just can't find anything with the same kind of chiles-- it's too bland. So when we're back in this area, we have to get our fill of carne asada, green chile enchiladas, fajitas, etc. We met a group of my wife's co-workers... More

Stopped in for first time with my wife for dinner. I had chicken and steak fajitas with whole beans and draft Modelo beer, wife had combo dinner with crispy chili relleno, whole beans and a glass of cabernet sauvigon. We were both very impressed. Food was great, service was great, restaurant was very clean and inviting. We will return soon!

We wanted to support a local place, even if a local chain, so we thought we'd try this place. It was just OK. The cons: - our server seemed a little unclear on the meaning of "on tap," bringing us bottled beer after we asked her what they had "on tap." - it was a little pricey for the quality/creativity...

We went here for friend's 34th anniversary before a show at Red Rocks. The moment we walked in we were greeted by a smiling hostess who dealt with our change in wanting a table to a booth with grace. Our chips, cabbage slaw and salsa arrived as we were seated. Our server was right there and Maria was fantastic through... More
