They definitely try to offer a large and somewhat upscale menu and I applaud that, but they would be much better served sticking to the basics. The atmosphere is typical of a mid range Mexican restaurant but they have recently added some higher end menu items like table side guacamole. I ordered the carnitas and can honestly say they were...

I love this place! Every thing I have ever ordered has tasted great. All my friends and family have also really enjoyed it too. Servers have always been pleasant but don't bother you. Enjoyable colorful atmosphere. Usually not crowded. Only negative is the restroom. Don't use the restroom. Ever. Dirty and stench! You will not be able to finish your... More

The atmosphere here is quite colorful. There has been an enormous amount of detail put into every aspect of this restaurants interior. The service here is very good as well. Service with a smile and in a professional manner. The food is very good. They have very good salsa. My wife noted that the chips seemed a little overcooked for... More

The decoration is very nice and colorful, I loved it, but the food wasn't what I expected. The service was good, always smiling and in a good mood, I would go back for that.

If this one is the one off State Road 52, it is moving soon. The food is satisfying. It's the only Mexican restaurant we use, and we trust it to be clean as well as yummy. Huge portions, authentic waiters, happy diners, fun.

Lots of bright colors and great smells as you walk in! We loved the ambiance of the restaurant and truly appreciated the quality of the food. Price was good, food was good, service was good. Like that it's a little off the main road so the crowds are mostly local folks. We'll eat here again when we're in the area.

Great food that always comes out hot. The decor is amazing and I can't believe it used to be a steakhouse with cowboy decor. Staff is always friendly.
