Our family has been coming here since the 70’s and we have always loved our experience here! The best and most excellent Mexican food we have ever had…and we have had many! Great service, friendly and polite…beverages and alcoholic beverages are tops…atmosphere is warm and ambient…clean…good parking and well lit…everything on the menu is pretty fabulous, however yes we do have a few ‘favorites’! Love ❤️ the Nacho’s, Beef Tacos, Beef enchiladas, Beans and Rice and some of your speciality’s look good. I tried one it was delicious 😋 we have no complaints whatsoever of this lovely Mexican Restaurant! We try to visit at least 4 times a year! Of course the health situation we have been going through here in Michigan has not at all made it easy to come down for a good Mexican dinner! We have missed it sooooo much! However we believe we can make a trip there soon 🔜 😊

Rude cashier. I ordered carry out 2-7-2020 treated rudely by cashier. I paid for my order checked it as stated asked why was an extra charge $4.50 for extra cheese questioned why she stated rudely you were told on phone i stated you didnt included price.. While checking my food I asked for extra bag she rudely said you have to wait. She proceeded to wait on two other customers and then I was handed the bag. She never said thank you. I will not patronize your establishment again with service like this.

Order CARRY OUT 2--7-2020 cashier rude. I was asking about charges of $4.50 on bill stated for extra cheese I mentioned while ordering she did state extra charge but did not mention price. She wanted to argue about it when asking for an extra bag she stated I'm with a customer I stated I'm an customer also. I waited for her to wait on two customers before she would accommodate me to give me a bag. I checked my food before leaving which your sign states before leaving. She never said thank you or everything alright. She was very rude and I hope I never encounter her again if I choose to patronize your establishment again. Customer Service is everything in business. Yours Suck TODAY

I met a friend here for dinner that I haven’t seen in a while. We ordered food and chatted for a longer than normal time. The food was standard and the service was just poor. If I could leave this review without rating service I would have because that’s how poor it was! After paying our bill and leaving a tip we were ask by one of the “greeters, using that very lightly” to leave our table! We gathered our things and left and ask to speak to a manager and a woman at the door reported she was “part owner” and when we told her she stated “you all can come back.” Rude and unprofessional is all I can say! I will NEVER spend money here again and no one else should either! They feel that because people are consistently coming in and out they don’t have to value the customers because they will make money anyway. There are other Mexican Restaurants that are in this area that are FAR BETTER and care about the customer!

The Best Mexican Food in the Area, Hands Down. Two locations, though I prefer the downtown one. Can be busy at times so grab a margarita.

Would not let our big group sit together even though the table next to us was not used half the time we were there. Half the party was on other side of dining room. Waiter took forever between getting waters and chips then tried to just take drink order when we were ready to order food as well. Fajitas seems like stew meat with tons of tomatoes but barely any onions. Waiter was lucky to get 20% tip because we didn't want to wait for change.

So weird, I look up restaurants in my area, and thus place is almost an hour away, and it comes up as "serving my zip code.", came up first and every other suggestion was actually local....hmmm. Either way, every time I go here, it tastes like cafeteria food. Gross.
