I really enjoyed eating here twice this month. I had a light menu item of grilled chicken with vegetables, and I requested the mango dressing as a dipping sauce. It was delicious, but the best thing was the fresh guacamole made tableside which was fabulous. On the second visit I ordered fish taco's. They tasted good, but the fish was pretty skimpy, mostly breading. I wouldn't recommend them. The house margarita was very good!

Where to begin... When we got our chips and salsa, we were astonished to find that the chips were actually taco shells broken in half. They were laughably huge , cold, and all together inedible. Our waiter was non chalant and inatentive. The healthy choice portion of the menu said that more nutrition information would be available on request. We thought that we had everything figured out until the waiter told us that, contrary to what was printed on the menu, the border smart chicken fajitas did not come with all of the listed ingredients. He suggested that we had to choose. We were okay with that but were wondering if each option equaled the printed calorie amount. He said "Sure, I guess." Skip to the food arriving ( thirty minutes later) and it is the most unappetizing thing that either of us had ever seen. Half of it was burnt and the other half undercooked. Both on one plate! When the waiter finally noticed we weren't eating and we expressed our concern. He said "Oh okay, Ill take it off" and that was the last we saw of him! We figured he wasn't coming back after he walked past us a couple of times without saying anything so we left! AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

Always great, friendly service. Good food, with plenty to take home. Neverending chips and salsa is a great thing when you have kids :)

Last night, I was with a buddy, and our girlfriends, we live in about 2 hours north of Kennesaw, and we were down there at a pet store my friend's date wanted to visit. We decided we wanted mexican food and stopped at the first one we saw. The waiter was a pretty cool guy, but thats about it. The girl that was with me ordered a "2 for $8.49 dinner special" and in stead got something similar to one of the things on the dinner special and was charged $4 more. I got some Chicken Queso dish that tasted like Cheese Whiz. My buddy, and the girl he was with didn't really hate their meal, but they said it was nothing to write home about. I complained to the manager about the quality of my food, and my date's food, and he refused to take us seriously, I am assuming because we were young (my date was 19, I am 18, my friend was 20, and his date was 19), as well as we payed around $72 plus tip for our meal. Definitely never going back, and probably never eating at a restaurant in Kennesaw again.

We came here because Chuys had a 45.min wait time and my 5 yr old was starving. There was nothing appealing ab my experience. Our server neglected to bring a table w a child a drink for 25 mins, but was quick to try to upsell us on everything. The cheese dip was cold, my "border bowl" honestly tasted like uncle beans rice and a can of beans mixed with under cooked shrimp. I wish I would have saved my time and gone to Taco Bell, lol

Waiter was Horrible. Food was yucky and portions sucked. Never go to this nasty place.

Never mind that it is a chain restaurant; go there if you want great fresh food, hand made from scratch tortillas, hot chips and salsa when you are seated, and wonderful service. My family and I frequent this OTB since we live nearby and we always enjoy the experience.

Not the experience I was expecting, sweet tea not sweet. Service is slow, and food is sub par. Had to send back everything and still wasn't what we wanted. Not authentic mexican at all.
