I stopped in here with some coworkers for National Margarita Day. It was packed and the service was a little slow, but the margaritas were cheap and tasty. I wouldn't mind visiting again for dinner.

I like Tex Mex food, including chains, but the options are usually calorie bombs. Not wanting a heavy lunch during the work day I opted for the healthy version of chicken fajitas and was pleased. Good portion, nice flavor, and the accompanying black beans were good. Service was ok but I would definitely go back after work for a margarita.

I met a few of my friends here for dinner when I was in town. The service was good and the food was OK. No complaints. Just not anything you would see out! If you are a chain food person, you will like it!

I enjoy coming here because they make their own chips and salsa- the chips always taste so fresh!! This is a great place to eat if staying at the Sheraton novi because it you can walk over. I have had great service both times I have visited. Food has been good, will definitely come back.

Nothing remarkable. Salads were large and ok. Nachos were quite good. Service was fine. Probably wouldn't go back - it was convenient to a nearby hotel.
