I've eaten here twice and both times I was really impressed by the freshness and flavor. Glad to have this in plano and the desserts are good too! One of the few places around you can get a slice made to order. This is a must try.

Tried this out for the first time today and had the Rib Eye Tacos on corn tortillas. Good vibe to this place and definitely authentic mexican food. They have some serious spicy hot sauce so ask for it. No idea what it's called. Have some great fish and chicken dishes as well. Strongly recommend!

Safari Towing was supposed to show up at 12-12:30 and showed up 30 minutes late after telling me at 12:14 they'd be there in 15 minutes. Worst of all this was scheduled 3.5 hours beforehand and I took off work.

Had a chance to try Buffalo Bluez out today and I'm glad I did. This place give's Five Guys, Mooyah's and Chilis a run for their money. Burgers were delicious and the fries were fresh cut. Friendly atmosphere with Beer on tap and an outside patio. I strongly recommend you try it out as they are new to Plano.
