My husband and I have been going here for several years now and I will say the food doesn't disappoint. However, the service has really gone down hill over the years. After yesterday, I'm not sure I want to go back for awhile. We almost...More

We had eaten here before, but it has been 6 years. I don't think we will be going back anytime soon. We were first seated under a TV, which is no big deal, but it was turned up very loud (even though CC was on)....More

I have no idea why the average ratings are on the mid to lower end. I loved the food here, and would be back in a heartbeat if I lived in Indiana. We stumbled upon this place courtesy of a Groupon that we found when...More

Stopped in around 1:30 pm for lunch with business associate. Eight other customers already there. Not bad for the time of day and single digit temperature. The service was fine the atmosphere and decor what you would expect in a Mexican resturant. The seating area...More

It was a gorgeous day and they had outside seating so we asked for an outdoor table. It was lunchtime and we were told they don't open the outdoor area until 3pm. That was my first disappointment. Onto the rest of this lunch experience: chips...More

When you can't tell if your fish tacos are really fish or when you think there is ground fish AND ground beef in your fish taco, you leave one on your plate uneaten. I ate the first one because I was really hungry. I did...More

The price of the food was reasonable. The menu selection was very good. The margarita was ok. Chips and salsa were a bit plain. I'd go back.

Salsa: mediocre. Beans: liquified beyond recognition. Fajita vegetables: very good. Fajita tacos: Excellent. I doubt I'll return, simply because we are salsa connoisseurs, and their's had an usual earthy taste. They do not have any hot salsa, either... just hot sauce. The fajita tacos were...More
