Was last here 2 years ago. I will start by saying I got food poisoning here and no it wasn't some small stomach ache I threw up till I could see all the bones in my face and hands and had 103 fever for 2 days. Let's move on to my experience. I had been to on the boarder in the past and it was good food at a good price. We stopped in after a trip to ikea. The place was basically empty with only 3-4 tables. They sat us at a table next to the kitchen for no reason. I spilled a glass of water on table and it went on an empty chair and all over the floor. The waitress took a dirty rag wiped the table then threw it on the floor to cover some of the spill. Our menus had food stuck to them which glued the pages together. We asked for new menus which where wiped down before handed to us with another dirty rag. At this point I'm at fault because we should have left. I ordered steak fajitas. As I ate I felt a crunch in my mouth followed by a terrible texture and taste. I was able to spit out half a piece of steak that had some slime inside it. The other piece of steak came out 9 hours later after throwing up for 3 hours as soon as it did I stopped throwing up and moved on to high fever for 2 days. DON'T EAT HERE!

good mexican/american chain food...have been there several times and haven't had a bad meal there as of yet..typical chain atmosphere, families and the possibility of getting loud in there, but again, it's a chain that happens to have good consistent food....check it out, i think you will be pleasantly surprised as to how much your gonna enjoy...and good menu selections and the drinks from the bar are always on point.!

Good food and even better margaritas. I'd recommend starting with the appetizer sampler as you get a nice combination of nachos, quesadillas, and flautas. For the main course, try the fajitas or the enchiladas suizas. The classic margaritas is always a solid choice for drink, or be a bit more daring and try the margarita/sangria mix!

Went here a few years ago and had an excellent time. The food was great, and the service was too. Went here last night hoping for a similar experience, but was let down. They had definitely changed some of their ingredients in their entrees, and went cheap on some of them. The food was not on par with what I experienced last time around, and it wasn't even on par with Chipotle, which is half the price of this restaurant. I think for what you pay the quality of the food should be better. It definitely was worth the premium last time out, but not now. The place seemed understaffed as well. Too few waiters handling too many tables. Last time out the service was excellent, but this time it was poor. It is not the waitstaff's fault, they are just being asked to do too much, or their system of managing their staff is inefficient. All in all, I spent over 50 bucks for something Chipotle does a lot better for 25.

This is the best Mexican Restaurant I have ever been too, the food is amazing. The Guacamoles is great and the sauce for their tortilla chips is nice and spicy. You do have to wait a bit to be seated, but it’s worth the wait. For true authentic Mexican food come here, you won’t be disappointed.

I was very unimpressed with this restaurant for several reasons: 1. We wanted to be seated outside at 6:15 PM on a beautiful sunny evening but was told they just closed the outdoor seating! 2. We had to wait an additional 10 minutes for a booth to be cleared. We looked around and there were already at least 5 already cleared booths, so not sure why we had to wait. 3. After diners left, nobody came to clear the tables. When we left, there were at least 10 tables that sat with dirty dishes, etc. It looked sloppy and dirty. 4. The ladies room was disgusting. The toilet paper wasn't attached to the wall. The sinks were both clogged and filled to the brim with water. I will NEVER step foot in this place again. If the dining room is managed so poorly, imagine what the kitchen is like?
