I've been to this location (and others) many times from 2000 to 2016, and the quality has been consistent through all those years. Portions are large, and the food is authentic. Parking can be a little tricky, even though there's a lot a few steps...More

The giant drinks were the perfect remedy to the blast furnace feel outside, and they kept getting stronger and stronger! The food was good - basic Mexican fare and worth the price. One of us ordered the rellenjos...three of the biggest chiles ever, and really...More

When you walk in the restaurant is colorfully decorated. Several bullfighter photos on the walls. Mexican music plays and the service is very friendly. The menu is diverse with excellent prices. Food was great. I would definitely return.

I had the pork carnitas and while they were pretty good, the pork was rather fatty and cut in chunks rather that pulled. That said, it was still good. Service was fine, price was reasonable and the chips and salsa were tasty.

The service is good and so are the Margaritas. The food leaves a lot to be desired. The chicken is tough and the seafood is not fresh. The chips taste more like fritos, too thick. We have been to this restaurant several times but there...More
