I know that this place is in a great location, and it is large enough for there to not be any waiting for lunch, but the food is simply not good. The rice, in particular, was not edible. The chicken taco had very tough meat...More

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.

Metal in my food. Seriously. We showed the manager/owner and he said it was from the metal scrubbies they use on the grill, like that made it acceptable. I had to ask for another meal, it wasn't offered. They brought the other dish and it...More

It really is a Mexican restaurant! Eight of us had dinner and the service was fast and friendly. Good Mexican beer specials and large drinks! Food portions are generous and very traditional. The décor is very Mexican - wild and crazy. Lots of TVs showing...More
