Service was fast at lunchtime. Lunch specials a good value. Food very good, probably the best I have had in the Tampa area.

The food was decent, though they put a hot, red sauce on items without listing it on the menu. Our major complaint was the bar area being open to the restaurant. When I'm dining with my family, I'd rather not hear drunks at a bar hollering obscenities at a sports channel. The place is big enough though that asking for... More

I've been going here for 20 years. They did over expand a few years ago and quality suffered but they are back to the original yummyness. Poco loco is my new favorite but tacos and enchaladas are really good too.

I had lunch there today. We each had tacos, drinks and ordered queso. The bill came up to $13.00. The food was pretty good. I will go back.

I really enjoy a great Chile relleno but this one was previously frozen. (They told me so). It was a big gob of cheese and just not so good. My husband had steak of some sort with sauce all over it and he didn't like it at all. At least the margaritas and chips and salsa were good. And the... More

Food is served very fast, service is very good, but food is so-so. We like real authentic Mexican food and it was OK. Hubby had fajita's with shrimp, steak and chicken........ he loved the dish and we could of shared there was so much food. I had the chicken Chimichanga that was so so. Chips and salsa bland, but cute... More

I went to celebrate my parents 49 yr anniversary and we were treated in a worst way possible. The young male waiter who claimed to be management was nasty and rude in every way. Bad attitude equals to bad service. Food was bland, I asked for a meal that consisted of a burrito, a taco, and a enchilada and they... More

Chips and salsa were good, Margaritas fine, Negro Modelo on tap was great. Taco salad was very good. My entre was wrong, and when it was replaced it was still wrong. Avoid the chili relleno -- a huge lump of cheese with almost no chili inside.
