    Very nice staff and the food is good! Chips and salsa is wonderful, but the salsa comes in a small bowl (I eat a lot of it). Will be back when I come back to Charlotte! Definitely recommend going here

    Cheap and tasty Mexican food. All dishes served hot and fresh. Lunch specials starting at less than $5. Very much worth the money.

    Chicken fajitas were a disappointing subpar. Service was slow. CONSTANT blaring bass vibrations from neighbor made the atmosphere almost intolerable. Won't be returning.

    This place has tableside guacamole. They give you a sample of it on a chip to make sure you like how it's prepared before serving it.
