    Good taco salad, green chili, tasty with good spice. No prices on the menu, gives them the ability to charge anything they want.

    No prices on menu! And a very convoluted explanation as to why. And an even more convoluted process to access their on line menu, that has prices! The food was within the realm of adequate! Nothing special, average at best! Not your traditional Mexican cuisine! It’s a 2 at best.

    The waiter was outstanding, was very attentive. I had a Chimichanga with shredded beef. You get a choice of Mild, Medium, or Spicy. I tried the Medium. It could have been spicier...next time I will get the Spicy. The prices were reasonable. They did add COS fee of 1.5% - Thanks to inflation. The menu didn't have prices because of rates increasing and decreasing- so you get a separate pamphlet with the prices. That way they don't have to re-do menus all the time.

    We tried the chili con queso dip, which was decent. However, the flank steak we ordered cooked medium turned out to be overcooked and had an unpleasant texture, resembling liver. It was not enjoyable. On the bright side, the shrimp fajitas were tasty. Unfortunately, the drinks were a letdown, lacking sufficient tequila; the coin margarita tasted like flavored water. We also splurged on the Cadillac margarita with an extra shot, which, while not terrible, didn't justify its high price tag of almost $30. Overall, our dining experience was extremely disappointing and left us feeling underwhelmed, especially considering the hefty bill of $205 with tip. It's frustrating to have spent so much for such a lackluster meal.

    This is our favorite family Mexican Food restaurant. From the chips and salsa to the menu options for children and adults alike, the food options are great and come quickly and well prepared. Prices have gone up over the last few years due to inflation, but that’s almost everywhere. The sopapillas were fantastic! Service was a little slow for a relatively slow night, but our server was very accommodating of our requests.
