It’s not easy to find good Mexican food but this wasn’t bad. Plus the prices were reasonable and the staff were very friendly and attentive, despite the crowd. I give it a thumbs up but be prepared to wait. Popular spot!

Fun Mexican restaurant. Here with a group of friends and everyone enjoyed it. Margaritas were great and the dishes are all very generous in size. Chips and salsa are good as well. Guacamole very good. Great place for a get together.

Good service. Mediocre, chain-style Mexican food. Lots of groups and families. Somewhat noisy, so may not be the best place for a discussion.
