Usually a call in order for us to go when we have a craving for really good Mexican food. Kids are always asking for this when they come back to town.

I can not say how awful this place was! I ordered my food and 1 hour later it came to me cold. I asked for the white cheese dipping sauce but could not eat it as it looked like some guy ejaculated in it before serving! Dirty and bad service. Will never go back.

The restaurant is very attractive but the food was just okay and the service was weak. Management is clearly not good here. I will not be going back.
