First, if a restaurant can not make proper ice tea I doubt if they can get the rest of the meal correct. Second, if the complementary chips and salsa has old chips that are stale, it's time to get up and leave. My daughter and...More

Food was good and service was better. Tried several dishes and it was all good. Red sauce is true New Mexico. Full bar available. They let us come in 10 minutes before closing and treated us very well.

The food is absolutely delicious and very good sized portions for the money. And don't get me started on the sopapillas! 12 x 12 pastries of deliciousness.

Some of their dishes are very very good, but some are less good. Servers are hit or miss also, some good, some not as great. Sorry!

Wasn't real hungry, so I ordered the Hard Tacos, very good. My Daughter and her husband hand the Sirloin Steak and it was perfect. "Order the side of Green Chile Pinto Beans"

If this wasn't the worst Mexican food I have ever had, I can't remember anything that was worse! For starters, the meal came out in about four minutes and was barely warm. The chile relleno did not taste too bad but by the time I...More

In all fairness, I should not have ordered 'enchiladas' here as I come from San Antonio, TX where the best Tex-Mex food is made. This was stacked tortillas with small amount of melted cheese in-between. Blah! Hubby had the Compuesta; a tortilla with beans and...More
