The taste was of the food was pretty bad. The texture of the meat, supposed to be beef, was sort of like potted meat. Taco Bell would have been quite an improvement. Service was slow and we felt unwelcome. Had not been here in a long time. The food used to be great. Would not return.

Doesn't look clean or good. Food mediocre. Wouldn't recommend. Slow service. Better Mexican locally.

Good location, nice looking restaurant. I didn't like the food, my daughter in law found hair in hers so it wasn't a good start really. The staff and service is poor. I wouldn't visit again. It did seem popular though so perhaps I chose the wrong thing!

I have been there for lunch many times, at the old and new location and for some reason they seem to run out of thousands island salad dressing. I have brought this to their attention several times and it doesn't seem to register or they don't care. The last time I went (6-5-16) I talked to four people before I... More

First we stood at the area to be seated forever and finally someone comes and seats us, no greeting or anything. The lady at the register saw us and the line behind us when she wasn't busy and never said someone will be with you or anything. The salad bar was a mess (not fond of them anyway) and we... More

We've driven past this location and each time thought we should stop. Yesterday, we took the bait. Parking was ample, the architecture and outside seating authentic and the menu enticing. The experience stalled-out there. We had the pollo fundido, that had thin pieces of flattened chicken covered with a colorful but pasty glop with a side of tasteless rice. A... More

They have quite a few options. Loved their lunch buffet! $7.99 and the service was great, we just were a bit lost since it was our first time but the server explained how it works.

Have been here twice. First time was after the new location opened. They forgot to update the parking lot. Food was so-so. Prices are high for what it is. They need to pay for that new building somehow. Service was sufficient. Very loud and someone let their child scream and yell thru our entire visit. Our waitress noticed but did... More
