Service was super slow. I have been a waiter so I have worn those shoes but the service was to slow, the manager was standing around instead of helping the waiter also. Food was average

I have eaten here a couple of times including when they first opened. The food is not bat at all, the service was a little smothering. There are certainly better places in town, but there are certainly worse as well. If someone wanted me to meet them here for dinner I would not object.

Stopped on a whim on my way from Dallas to Houston for dinner with my wife and son. Now, its a place I would visit again anytime. I had the Agave Ribeye which was cooked perfectly, topped with a great assortment of jalapenos, bacon, bell peppers, mushrooms and cheese. They even give you a half-shot of tequila meant to be...

SKIP THIS PLACE AND GO TO MARGARITA'S which is one exit south of this place!! While traveling north from a trip to Houston, we stopped here for dinner. We were craving some good Tex-Mex since we can not get that where we currently live. We had been to Huntsville once before around 5 years ago, and thought that Mam Juanitas... More

Good go to for mexican food in Huntsville. Usually have their fajitas which have a better seasoned taste than some of the other mexican food places in town. My youngest likes the mac and cheese here, which makes it a plus because a lot of places in town she does not care for.

A really fun place to eat. Smells good when you walk in, seated immediately, and very friendly servers. The menu is huge and the food is terrific. It is for sure the best mexican food in town, and the margaritas are delicious. Top it off with an ice cream cone for dessert. Prices are right and you get a discount... More

Terrible! I ordered tortilla soup and it was sour! My kids couldn't even eat their food. Not recommended at all!

Great service and great food. We had the beef fajitas and they were really tender. They can make guacamole at the table with whatever ingredients you like. Easy off and on I-45 northbound.

Stopped here again while on a road trip and it was just as good as the first time. The food was served hot and fresh and very tasty. The service matched the food as it was very good. Restrooms were clean and well stocked. Would eat here again while passing thru.
