Stopped in here on a recent Thursday night. Did not know that they have a happy hour in the bar that includes food. Some entrée specials and all appetizers are half price. Two appetizers and three drinks came to $25. That included two very large mango margaritas. They were spectacular. Happy hour is only good in the bar seating area... More

As a chain, you typically know what to expect; this store delivers consistently. We typically sit on the bar side; enjoy the atmosphere and the speedy service.

My wife and I go here a few times a month. The food is good and the margaritas are on point also! I enjoy the borderito bowls and my wife gets fajitas. The live guacamole is also great and fresh! The only draw back is the staff. We never know if were going to get a friendly human being or... More

I stopped here for an early dinner while in RC for a meeting. The place was empty and appears to be fairly new. Staff were friendly and service prompt. Food was good, I thought chille relleno was was better than the enchilada on my combination plate. They had an interesting choice of margaritas; I liked the prickly pear one.

Good food - highly recommend the fish tacos! Kitchen was understaffed according to a server. It took over 45 mins to get our meal. Good service and clean. Not very busy at lunch- good prices. We will be back. Tip:. If stopping for a business lunch, consider calling your order in ahead of time, so it will be ready when... More

My spouse and I came here after receiving a gift card and wanted to take advantage of Happy Hour. Upon arrival we could tell it was crowded but could see plenty of booths open in the restaurant. After being ignored by the hostess for about 5 minutes we were seated in the back where the heat was not on and... More

The waitress was the worst one I have ever had in my life. She brought me the bill even though I didn't ask for it. I told her we were not done, she said okay. She never came back. I had to go to the bard to get another drink. After about 30 minutes I talked to the manager and... More
