What did I like about it.. umm.. the beer was good but that isn't made by them so it makes sense. Obviously it is busy since it is the 5th of may, which I know is a standard thing, but when our food comes out under cooked or burnt to the point of pure carbon.. it's an issue. The manager was no accommodating or understanding at all and just made excuses the entire time. Time for ordering to plate = over an hour and was still awful.

Loved it! The food was good, and the people that work there were so nice and helpful. Had a few drinks, apps and dinner. It wasn't our of line on the pricing either!

The food is mostly really good, beans were a bit meh, but the service was good and we enjoyed our meals, which were a decent price too. We didn't give it 5 because it isn't amazing. But if you are looking for an alternative to the regular highway chains we highly recommend this place!

Excellent dining experience. Multiple staff made sure I had everything I needed. The queso fundido and pollo con queso was also excellent. I am hard to please, but have no complaints here.

Do not order food to go from these guys. I ordered a Chicken Nacho should of been $5.25 and asked for the cheese and chicken on the side to prevent it from being soggy. I also asked for a bottle of Pepsi. They charged me $9.00, all was good about to leave and they accused me of stealing the Pepsi because I did not pay for it. After about 10 minutes of arguing they in fact charged me $9 for a special Fiesta Nacho because of the type of chicken the was on the Nachos. Finally after another 10 minutes of arguing and trying to get them to understand English while the Gentleman kept pointing at the Fiesta Nachos on the Menu, which had peppers, onions, and tomatoes that I also did not order and was not on my meal, I just paid for the Pepsi and left. It would seem to me they are using the obvious language barrier to rip customers off. This will be my last time at this establishment.

As a hungry family driving down I-80, we were on a Google search plan for good food. We were very happy that the reviews for this restaurant drew us a few extra blocks from the exit. At 2:30pm on a Sunday the place was almost empty and the service was great. Free chips and salsa were ok but the slow-cooked pork chimis were excellent along with everyone's dishes at the table. Acapulco chicken salad could have used a touch more dressing, but we didn't ask. Would definitely return here if we were anywhere nearby.
